Abstract

Mucormycosis is a fulminating, opportunistic and often a fatal mycotic infection. Its incidence is commonly observed among immune suppressed patients. We are reporting 3 cases of Rhino-orbital mucormycosis with central retinal artery occlusion. All 3 were males in the age range of 50-70 years. All were diabetic with similar clinical presentation; they were treated with I.V Amphotericin B along with control of blood sugars. Although the general outcome was good in all the three patients the visual prognosis remained poor.

Keywords: Central retinal artery occlusion, Diabetes, Immunocompromised Mucormycosis, Rhino-orbital.
