Acute invasive fungal rhinosinusitis (AIFRS) is an aggressive disease with fatal complications. The mortality rate of AIFRS ranges between 49 and 62%. The incidence of visual loss in AIFRS has been reported to be between 26 and 29%. A total of 5/16 patients in our study showed improvement in vision after treatment in 1 year follow-up while 11 patients showed no improvement in visual acuity. The AIFRS with visual loss is managed using systemic amphotericin B with a combination of surgical debridement.
