Abstract

It is commonly seen in patients with decreased immunity like patients with chronic renal failure, organ transplantation, neutropenia and most commonly in those with poorly controlled diabetes. We present a case of 55-year-old diabetic man who presented with headache and fever diagnosed with pulmonary and maxillary sinus mucormycosis presenting as diabetic ketoacidosis.
