Rhinophycomycosis entomophthorae is a rare tropical granulomatous infection caused by the fungal organism Entomophthora coronata. The disease arises as a submucosal granuloma, usually in the region of the inferior turbinate, spreads centrifugally to involve the nasal sinuses, alae nasae, upper lip, forehead and cheeks and may produce extensive facial deformity. The response to medical treatment with potassium iodide or co-trimoxazole is variable. We wish to report a case in which staged surgical correction of the sequelae of the disease produced a significant improvement in the facial appearance.
