Mucormycosis is a fungal disease in which normal saprophytic molds produce an acute and often rapidly fatal infection. Mucormycosis occurs in two main forms : superficial and visceral. The visceral variety has been associated with a poor prognosis and usually presents with either pulmonary, gastrointestinal or head and neck involvement. This article reports two cases of this potentially lethal disease in which satisfactory treatment and cure entailed definitive surgical intervention.
