HERNANDEZ MENDEZ, Héctor  and  RODRIGUEZ HIDALGO, Alejandra. Endodontic patient with rhinocerebral mucormycosis: clinical case report. Rev. Odont. Mex [online]. 2015, vol.19, n.2, pp.121-126. ISSN 1870-199X.

A patient previously diagnosed with cerebral mucormycosis attended the Endodontics Clinic of the Graduate and Research School, National School of Dentistry, National University of Mexico (UNAM). This article presents variations in the clinical handling of the patient; stress is made on the importance of preserving the greatest number of teeth in the mouth to thus achieve better stability of the palatal obturator and establish suitable phonation and mastication functions.

Keywords : Rhinocerebral mucormycosis; zygomycosis; palate necrosis.
