Abstract

Solid organ transplantation is a risk factor for mucormycosis. Mucormycosis is a necrotizing opportunistic fungal infection with high morbidity and mortality. We report a fatal mucormycosis case with rhino-orbital-cerebral involvement in a renal transplant patient, which presented with orbital apex syndrome and hemiplegia.
