Abstract

Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) infections can be related to vast spectrum of co-existent bacterial and fungal infections. A 49-year-old diabetic male was admitted with a history of fever, cough and breathlessness since 5 days. He developed persistent headache with right sided purulent nasal discharge. Relevant histo-pathological, biochemical, microbiological and imaging studies were performed which proved it to be a dual infection of Aspergillosis and Mucormycosis. We present one such case in a COVID-19 patient to highlight its unusual clinical features along with the diagnostic and therapeutic challenges.
