Gastrointestinal mucormycosis is an uncommon disease most often occurring in immunocompromised individuals, patients with diabetes, and patients suffering from hematologic and solid malignancy. Rarely, it may occur in normal persons without any contributory factor. We report a rare case of gastric mucormycosis in an immunocompetent individual who recovered with Amphotericin-B treatment.
