Emphysematous gastritis is an often lethal, rare clinical entity referring to air bubbles in the wall of the stomach produced by gas-forming bacteria. Invasive gastrointestinal mucormycosis is an unusual clinical presentation of this invasive fungal disease. We report the first case of invasive gastric mucormycosis occurring with emphysematous gastritis, and review the literature regarding both of these clinical entities.
