Mucormycosis is a rare invasive and highly aggressive fungal infection, which shows rapid progression with life threatening complications in immunocompromised patients. Therefore, it is important to quickly recognize fungal infection in immunocompromised patients and start treatment with antifungal agents or perform surgical debridement. Most nasal septal abscesses are caused by post-traumatic hematoma and subsequent bacterial infection. In immunocompromised patients, nasal septal abscess can develop without trauma and may involve atypical pathogens like fungus. Herein we report a case of mucormycosis presenting with abscesses of nasal septum and gingivobuccal mucosa in an immunocompromised patient.
