Abstract. Cutaneous mucormycosis is an uncommon, life-threatening, opportunistic fungal infection that is a distinctly different entity from the more frequent although still uncommon rhinocerebral form that is better known to otolaryngologists. We describe what to our knowledge is the only reported case of cutaneous mucormycosis of the face with parotid gland involvement, which occurred in a 56-year-old man. The diagnosis was established by tissue biopsy.
