Rhino-orbito-cerebral Mucormycosis is a rapidly aggressive disease having various clinical presentation like facial pain, nasal stuffiness, headache, retro-orbital pain, orbital swelling, ophthalmoplegia and visual loss. Multiple cranial nerves can be involved, however facial nerve palsy has been rarely reported. We aim to highlight the involvement of facial nerve as a presenting symptom. Mucormycosis should be kept as a differential in these cases for rapid diagnosis and treatment initiation to provide a good overall outcome.
