Facial deformities are a major cause of loss of self-esteem in patients. Treatment usually involves surgical correction. Medical treatment is rarely possible if the cause is infective and curable with oral medication. We report a case of Conidiobolomycosis in a 43 years old agriculturist from rural part of Eastern India who presented with a significant facial deformity and incessant sneezing and nasal discharge. His biopsy revealed the fungus which resolved with oral medications.
