Abstract

Mucormycosis is a rare condition, posing diagnostic and therapeutic challenge for dental surgeons who may not be familiar with its clinical presentation. Immunocompromised are more likely to suffer from this disease. In dentistry, this condition gains increasing interest because of its first manifestation in the facial and oral tissue. Proper history, clinical examination with radiological and histopathological investigations lead to its early diagnosis. Surgical management along with the institution of specific antifungal therapy ensures a good prognosis, thereby reducing the fatal complications associated with this disease.
