We describe the first recorded case of invasive rhino-orbital infection with the zygomycete Syncephalastrum racemosum in a 45-year-old male patient with chronic hepatitis B infection, along with cirrhosis of liver. The patient was successfully treated with partial surgical debridement and liposomal amphotericin B.
