Abstract
Mucormycosis is a fungal infection that primarily causes opportunistic infections. Gastrointestinal mucormycosis is a rare infection that can occur in immunocompromised patients, nevertheless, prompt diagnosis and treatment is essential because it can be fatal. Gastrointestinal mucormycosis can only be diagnosed based on the findings of a pathological examination. Mucormycosis should be included in the differential diagnosis if the condition of patients with underlying immunocompromised conditions or diseases does not improve with general intensive care.
Key Words: Mucormycosis, gastrointestinal tract, immunocompromised host, Vibrio, Sepsis
