Since the first case of COVID-19 was reported in December 2019, there have been several additions to the already broad spectrum of its clinical manifestations. The SARS-CoV-2 being a respiratory virus has crucial significance in the otorhinolaryngologic specialty. ENT specific COVID symptoms range from minor cases of sore throat on the one hand to severe presentations of mucormycosis on the other hand. Mucormycosis is an atypical life threatening deep fungal infection with increased propensity of presentation in immunocompromised patients. COVID-19 being an immune-mediated disease has obvious implications in the pathogenesis of mucormycosis.
