Received Date: Jan 11, 2018 / Accepted Date: Jan 29, 2018 / Published Date: Feb 05, 2018
Pulmonary mucormycosis is a relatively uncommon infection that is mostly observed among diabetic patients.

The goals of our review are to better characterize the population at risk, presenting symptoms, radiological appearance, diagnostic methods and to demonstrate the efficacy of medical therapy.
