Pulmonary mucormycosis is a relatively uncommon infection that is mostly observed among diabetic patients. We present here three cases of pulmonary mucormycosis as the cause of non-resolving pneumonia in 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.
