India is well known as the diabetes “capital” of the world but now it is also becoming the mucormycosis “capital” of the world. Indian Council of Medical Research has formed an “Evidence-Based Advisory in The Time of COVID-19 on Screening, Diagnosis, and Management of Mucormycosis.” As per this advisory, an oral and maxillofacial surgeon forms an integral part of the team dedicated to fight this epidemic of mucormycosis. Also, there are other fungal infections such as aspergillosis which are getting reported in these patients affecting the paranasal sinuses and the jaws. Aggressive surgical debridement and a thorough knowledge of anti-fungal therapy are must in treating these fungal infections. The aim of this article is to give an overview on the available anti-fungal therapy required to manage the ever-increasing rise in fungal infections faced by maxillofacial surgeons in post-COVID-19 patients.
