Sažetak

Anterior tamponade with Surgicel (oxidized cellulose) was performed on a 5-year-old girl with megakaryoblastic leukemia
(M7 AML) and epistaxis. Several days later necrosis of the nasal ala occurred. Debridement was performed and
mucormycosis caused by Rhizopus was found in the material. Having cured mucormycosis, a defect of the complete nasal
ala remained. The question of a surgical resolution of the disfiguring nasal defect arises.
