Mucormycosis has recently become more common in India, with COVID-19 patients being the most affected. Pulmonary, gastrointestinal, disseminated, or rhinocerebral infections have various forms of mucormycosis. The most prevalent type is rhinocerebral, which affects the maxilla, nose, sinuses, and brain. A total or partial maxillectomy has an impact on a patient's cosmetic, functional, and psychological well-being. To replace not only missing teeth but also lost soft tissues and bone, such as the hard palate and alveolar ridges, a maxillofacial prosthodontist must overcome numerous obstacles. For the rehabilitation of such deformities, prosthetic rehabilitation has become the preferred option. Magnets are an efficient technique to provide retention, quality, and consistency in a system. This clinical report describes the prosthetic rehabilitation of an acquired maxillary defect secondary to mucormycosis with a magnet-retained two-part prosthesis.
