Core Tip Gastric mucormycosis is very rare; co-infection with candida albicans is even more rare. Candidiasis masked the presence of mucormycosis in this patient and was suspected because of poor response to diflucan. Treatment with amphotericin B was delayed but once instituted, the response was good. Awareness of this co-existence of mucormycosis and candida infection in immune-compromised patient should be improved.
