We present a rare case of a patient who presented with atypical cranial nerve palsies, with subsequent isolation of mucormycosis from an upper neck subcutaneous swelling. This is an unusual initial site of isolation of mucormycosis. We believe that this should be considered among the differentials when a diabetic or immunosupressed patient presents with cervical lymphadenopathy and cranial nerve palsies.
