Abstract

We report 3 previously healthy children of postneonatal age who developed fatal form of gastrointestinal mucormycosis after systemic inflammatory response syndrome, shock and metabolic acidosis. Abdominal distension and peritonitis were secondary complications. The study highlights the importance of clinical suspicion of gastrointestinal mucormycosis when the triad of shock requiring vasoactive drugs, metabolic acidosis and abdominal distension is present.
