Abstract


Mucormycosis is an invasive fungal infection of nose and pa-ranasal sinuses by fungi from family Mucoracea, is usually seen in diabetic and immunocompromised patients. In patients with COVID-19, the early start of high dose steroids even in mild stage, the use of immunomodulators (Tocilizumab), longstanding oxygen therapy and previous uncontrolled diabetes mellitus are the im-portant factors predisposing to this fulminant infection.
