Herein is an original report of a cephalosporium fungus infection eroding through the hard palate after presenting as a pansinusitis. There are three reasons for reporting this paper. First, insofar as the authors can determine in light of their own clinical experiences and the recorded medical literature, the case is completely unique in every respect. Second, the therapeutic response to the clinical management during hospitalization and amphotericin B infusions resulted in negative cultures. This, in itself, is rare. Last, the employment of immunological techniques utilizing general and specific antigen mold therapy may serve to stimulate further interest in such techniques
