Mucormycosis is a life-threatening infection. This is the first report of transdiaphragmatic mucormycosis in a series of three patients. We observed this phenomenon in 11% of patients. Clinicians should be aware of this possibly underreported entity and as a consequence we envision more comprehensive imaging studies in patients with mucormycosis.
