摘要

Mucormycosis is an invasive and potentially lethal infection caused primarily by fungi of the order mucorales. An ulcer or extraction in the mouth can be the port of fungal invasion, particularly when the patient is immunocompromised. Early recognition and aggressive treatment have reduced the mortality and morbidity. We present a case of oral mucormycosis with extensive maxillary osteonecrosis that is of interest because the patient ignored the initial warning signs and was rescued from the fulminating stage by thorough debridement and medical treatment.
