Mucormycosis is a rarely encountered invasive fungal infection with high mortality. Solid organ transplantation is one of the risk factors for mucormycosis. Mucormycosis can be classified in six different groups according to the anatomical localization; rhinocerebral, pulmonary, cutaneous, gastrointestinal, disseminated, and other less common involvements. This paper presented a mucormycosis case with rhinoorbitocerebral involvementin a renal transplantation receiver, which manifested with orbital apex syndrome.
