ABSTRACT

Among the ever-increasing literature of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), there have been reports on several complications in association with severe acute respiratory syndrome-coronavirus-2 (SARS-CoV-2), such as secondary bacterial and fungal infections. We report a 61-year-old woman with a past history of diabetes mellitus who presented to our hospital suffering from COVID-19 infection. During the course of her hospitalization, the patient developed chemosis and proptosis in both eyes, ultimately leading to a diagnosis of invasive rhino-orbital-cerebral mucormycosis and cerebrovascular thrombosis. This study strengthens the possible association between the occurrence of COVID-19 and invasive mucormycosis infection, providing new impetus for further investigations to substantiate this correlation.
