Fungal infections are common in a tropical country like India. Among the Zygomycosis infections, those caused by Mucorales are more prevalent. However, there exists another order of zygomycetes, the Entomophthorales, which rarely cause clinical disease. We report a rare cause of fungal infection of the maxillo-facial region and the oropharynx in a previously healthly male adult caused by Conidiobolus coronata of the order Entomophthorales to highlight the clinical presentation and treatment of this rare, chronic, indolent form of fungal infection.
