We report a case of cutaneous mucormycosis occurring in the setting of disseminated intravascular coagulation following snakebite in an adult. It occurred in the chest wall presenting as a necrotic patch with satellite spots. This case occurred in a different clinical scenario in which mucormycosis is not usually suspected. This highlights the importance of a wide range of clinical suspicion to diagnose such cases in an unusual scenario. Since mucormycosis spreads rapidly with a bad prognosis, it warrants early diagnosis and treatment. Hence, this case has been reported for its unusual presentation. There is also the need to suspect and diagnose these cases early for effective management.
