Abstract

Primary cutaneous mucormycosis is uncommon and is extremely rare in immunocompetent young individuals. Here we report a case of necrotising fasciitis due to mucormycosis in an immunocompetent young individual following minor trauma. Mucormycosis must be suspected in any wound that is worsening despite appropriate treatment even in immunocompetent individuals.
