This case report presents the possible association between invasive fungal sinusitis (mucormycosis) and coronavirus disease. Rhino-Orbito-Cerebral Mucormycosis (ROCM) is the lethal fungal infection in post-COVID-19 patients. Contrast-Enhanced Magnetic Resonance Imaging (CEMRI) was done to evaluate the extension. MRI is beneficial in delineating the spread and helps in deciding further treatment. Here is a case with having COVID-19 infection history with the intracranial extension of mucormycosis affecting the internal carotid artery.
