Mucormycosis is a rare infection caused by fungi of the opportunistic type. It is severe, of an acute and fast course, with a high mortality rate. We present the case of a patient who was admitted for mucormycosis of the frontal, ethmoidal, and superior maxillary sinuses superior and the orbit. The patient was unaware of suffering from diabetes mellitus, a comorbidity diagnosed in the context of mycosis. The port of entry was a leg injury caused by being rural worker. We present surgical therapeutics and established medical treatment.
