Abstract: AIM: Observe the treatment outcome of the patients treated for Post COVID ROM in a tertiary care hospital with 6 month follow up. MATERIALS AND METHODS All patients diagnosed for Post COVID ROM were included in this study. All these patients were subjected to surgical debridement and anti-fungal treatment. The patients were followed up for a period of 6 months and outcome was evaluated based on the postoperative morbidity. RESULTS 60 patients were included in the study. 44 patients had limited disease. 16 patients had extensive disease. All patients underwent surgical debridement and anti-fungal treatment. Repeat imaging was done 3 months to assess the treatment outcome. A complete 6 month follow up was done. CONCLUSION In the early stage of the pandemic, patients who presented very late with extensive disease and were subjected to radical surgical debridement which included orbital exenteration. Later ROM was identified earlier and early surgical intervention was started. Early suspicion and aggressive surgical debridement not only had good outcome, but also reduced the post-operative morbidity. In early disease presentation significant reduction in morbidity and reduced recurrence was observed in patients who have undergone Caldwell Luc surgery to examine the maxillary sinus cavity along with endoscopic debridement for disease clearance in the maxillary sinus floor and anterolateral wall. In delayed presentation and in patients needing Maxillectomy, preservation of mucosa of hard palate had significant reduction in postoperative morbidity without increasing the recurrence rate.
