Abstract

A complex interplay of corona virus infection, immunosuppressive treatments and uncontrolled blood sugar levels have evolved in current surge of Mucormycosis / fungal infections in recovered covid patients. We describe a rare case of probable mucormycosis in a 32-year-old man with diabetes, and COVID-19 antibodies with no history of hospitalisation or fever and negative RT-PCR test for covid 2 months back. We also performed a systematic review of our cases encountered in last 1 year and identified five peculiar cases of COVID-19 associated oromaxillofacial complications/mucormycosis. Of the six cases included in our review, diabetes mellitus and use of immunocompromised drugs were the most common risk factors. This article provides potential information about post COVID-19 dental complications, and highlights on the suggested treatment policies for oral health practitioners.
