A case of localised cutaneous zygomycosis was diagnosed on histopathology in a one month old burn wound. The diagnosis was made by the presence of characteristic fungal hyphae on histopathological examination. The importance of the findings can be emphasised by the fact that cutaneous zygomycosis is a relatively rare but potentially fatal infection encountered in general hospital setup. The characteristic findings on histopathology confirmed the diagnosis in the absence of fungal culture.
