A case of zygomycosis involving the maxillary sinus in a normal host and mimicking paranasal malignancy is presented. Computed tomographic images showing destruction of adjoining bony structures and histologic features of fungi are described and presented. A successful outcome was achieved with amphotericin B irrigation and parenteral amphotericin B. Nasal biopsy should be advised by both radiologists and clinicians in all cases of lesions that look like malignancy in the sinus areas before a treatment modality is initiated.
