Mucormycosis is an emerging angioinvasive infection caused by the ubiquitous filamentous fungi of the Mucorales order of the class of Zygomycetes. Mucormycosis is a common fungal infection usually noted in immunocompromised individuals like diabetic and AIDS patients, patients receiving systemic corticosteroid therapy, cancer chemotherapy and organ transplant patients. It is very rare to affect healthy individual. Here we report a case of 30 years old immunocompetent female patient who presented with mucormycosis and the diagnosis was confirmed by surgery and microbiological investigations.
