Mucormycosis in an immunocompetent patient is a rarity. Further, the involvement of palate by the
said infection is not a common occurrence. In light of these facts; we present a rare case of palatal
mucormycosis in an immunocompetent infant of three months. To our knowledge, such a case has
not been previously reported in medical literature.
