The objective of this case report was to highlight the significance of curable combined fungal infections which are seen in patients with certain risk fac- tors. Fungal pathologies such as aspergillosis and mucormycosis are invasive infections which can affect pulmonary or extra-pulmonary regions of immuno- compromised host. Early diagnosis with the help of imaging and histopathol- ogy and treatment with combined medical or surgical therapies can lead to complete recovery. If left untreated, they can be fatal. Here we discuss a case of a patient who was diagnosed with mucormycosis and aspergillosis on histo- pathology. Patient was treated with systemic antifungals and showed marked improvement after treatment.
