Abstract

Fungal infections of the para nasal sinuses are uncommon [1, 2]. We report a rare case of Conidiobolus coronatus infection of the para-nasal sinuses in a 32-year old immuno competent male presenting as a sino-nasal tumour extending to the brain which completely resolved following resection and anti fungal therapy. Nasal sinus infection due to C. coranatus has not been reported previously in Sri Lanka.
