Abstract

SINO NASAL MUCORMYCOSIS – CAUSING HEMIPLEGIA A CASE REPORT

D. Sridhara Narayanan*, Merlyn Ann Varghese, P. M. Hari

ABSTRACT

Fungal infection of paranasal sinuses is an increasingly recognized
entity both in normal and immunocompromised individuals. Paranasal
mycosis manifests as two distinct entities, a benign or noninvasive
infection and more serious invasive infection which occurs in
immunocompromised individuals and characterized by its rapid onset,
ability to invade tissues and cause of destruction. Early diagnosis is
vital in these infections because delay in initiation of treatment can be
life threatening due to propensity of fungi to invade adjacent blood
vessels and to embolize to distant organs including brain. In this article
we report a rare case of sinonasal mucormycosis causing hemiplegia.

Keywords: mucormycosis, hemiplegia.
