    Two patients with rhinocerebral phycomycosis associated with diabetes are presented. The chronic nature of the illness in these two cases in emphasized in contrast to the more fulminant course of most previously reported patients. A high index of suspicion is needed to establish the diagnosis as rapidly as possible.
