Abstract

We report a 53-year-old farmer, with right sided epiphorea, headache and nasal obstruction for 2 months. FONL revealed a growth beneath right inferior turbinate. He was diagnosed to have Rhinofacial Zygomycosis due to Conidiobolus coronata and treated with oral Itraconazole. He improved and is still on follow up.
