Abstract

Mucormycosis is an uncommon fungal infection primarily seen in immunocompromised patients. We present a patient whose hospital course was rapidly complicated by invasive mucormycosis, which caused his death. Computed tomography (CT) was very helpful in characterizing the extent of involvement and directing clinical management.
