We report three cases with rhinocerebral zygomycosis in two diabetic persons and one otherwise healthy person. The diagnosis was established by histopathological appearance and computerized tomography (CT) and/or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans. These cases were successfully treated by a combination of surgery and liposomal amphotericin B.
