We report a case of invasive sinonasal Scopulariopsis that mimicked mucormycosis in a 63-year-old diabetic patient. The isolated fungus from functional endoscopic sinus surgery (FESS) specimen was identified as Scopulariopsis brevicaulis. The patient was treated with Amphotericin B followed by Itraconazole. Aetiological identification of the fungus is very essential for preventing recurrence.
