    Mucormycosis is a rare opportunistic fungal infection with a rapidly progressive and fulminant course with often fatal outcome. A less fulminant variety of this is the Rhino maxillary subtype which usually presents with palatal ulceration, facial swelling, turbinate necrosis and purulent sinusitis. We are reporting our experience of 4 such cases seen during the last 10 yrs. A strong suspicion, prompt diagnosis with pathological confirmation and aggressive surgical treatment gives a better outcome
