Invasive fungal infections are associated with morbidity and mortality in immunocompromised patients. Infection of rhinocerebral region are mainly due to opportunistic fungal pathogens. Although zygomycosis and aspergillosis are two major causes of paranasal infections, reports of combined mucormycosis and aspergillosis infections of rhinocerebral region are limited. We report a case of combined rhinocerebral fungal infection in post renal transplant diabetic patient. Identification of two fungal pathogens helps in appropriate management of patient with clinical cure.
