Abstract

A 42-year-old male patient presented with a mass lesion over the dorsum of nose and central face. Initially, all investigations including inflammatory markers, multiple biopsies and fungal stains failed in diagnosing the disease. Eventually, it was diagnosed as rhino-facial conidiobolomycosis by fungal culture and successfully managed with combination antifungal therapy.
