Allergic fungal rhinosinusitis (AFRS) forms a significant group of patients presenting with the commonest health problem encountered in rhinology. Patients commonly present with typical symptoms of sinusitis, and the diagnosis is often made after imaging and/or intraoperatively. Infections caused by Chrysosporium species are very rare and are very rarely been reported to cause sinusitis in humans. Usually, human chrysosporial infections are mild and unmarked by symptoms. We report a rare case of allergic fungal sinusitis (AFS) caused by Chrysosporium species in a 41-year-old male with the history of diabetes mellitus.
