Abstract

Mucormycosis is a rare and fatal infection, largely confined to immunocompromised hosts. Duodenal involvement is extremely rare. We report a case of a 67-year-old female presented with hematemesis eventually diagnosed with duodenal mucormycosis, while radiology characteristics suggested malignancy.
