Abstract

Mucor is a saprophytic organism and commonly invades the nose and paranasal sinuses of immunocompromised and diabetic patients. Middle ear involvement is extremely uncommon. Early diagnosis based on strong clinical suspicion with radical debridement in the early setting under amphotericin cover offers a suitable management option.
