Following the COVID pandemic, mucormycosis epidemic began as the next threat. A huge number of cases started accumulating. Although there is known pathogenesis and treatment for mucormycosis, several cases presented in uncommon ways causing a delay and dilemma in diagnosis and management. This case series is to highlight some of such presentations. Here, we present a series of nine cases which has deviated from the normal clinical progression of the sinus to the orbit. This case series depicts patients who had late signs of orbital cellulitis such as central retinal artery occlusion, papilledema, and optic neuritis as initial presentations. Furthermore, cases with superadded bacterial infection and aspergilloma are highlighted.
