Mucormycosis in infants is exceedingly rare, and over 90% of reported cases have been fatal. A case of a dehydrated three-week-old infant with involvement of the palate, maxilla, orbit, and brain is described with extensive laboratory and radiological investigation. This infant survived after surgical debridement and therapy with amphotericin B.
