Rhinocerebral mucormycosis is rare, but fatal infection of the nasal cavity and sinuses. It can spread to the orbits and cranium within days, and prognosis is directly associated with length of time before diagnosis and treatment. Rhinocerebral mucormycosis can cause cerebral infarction via carotid artery occlusion. Therefore, neurosurgeon is paramount in making the proper management. We recently encountered a case of rhinocerebral mucormycosis with massive cerebral infarction. The clinical and radiological details of this case are presented here with a brief review of the literature.
