Mucormycosis is a rare opportunistic fungal infection, which is mainly reported to occur in patients with immunocompromised conditions such as uncontrolled diabetes mellitus and leukaemias. In this paper, two cases of mucormycosis are reported after dental extractions. The first case of mucormycosis occurred in the maxilla and mandible of a 14 year old male patient undergoing chemotherapy for acute myeloid leukaemia. The second case occurred in the mandible of a 49 year old male patient with a recently diagnosed type-2 diabetes mellitus, presenting with ketoacidosis and underlying undiagnosed acute lymphoblastic leukaemia. The outcome of these reported cases of mucormycosis was favourable after comprehensive surgical and medical management.
