Mucormycosis is a rare complication in cancer patients. This report presents the case of a acute myeloblastic leukemia patient who developed an ascending paralysis due to disseminated mucormycosis. The presentation was unusual because the early symptoms were fever and pain, and the disease was misdiagnosed because of a concomitant infection by Enterococcus faecium.
