Oral mucormycosis is an unusual and a lethal infection in patients following hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. A 20 year old man was diagnosed at the Austral University Hospital with palatal mucormycosis on day +20 after a hematopoietic stem cell transplant because of an acute leukemia lymphoblastic. There are less than 25 palatal mucormycosis cases reported in the literature. This case highlights the importance of being aware of this uncommon, but potentially fatal condition when assessing patients with transplants for a prompt diagnosis and intervention.
