Over the past few years, invasive fungal infections have increased in immunocompromised patients, although rarely seen in immunocompetent patients. We report an autopsy case of mixed fungal infection (Aspergillus, Mucor, and Candida) in lung in a male patient, with a severe chest wall injury in a road side accident. The patient was bed ridden for many years due to multiple injuries and fractures all over the body. Early detection, surgical intervention, and appropriate antifungal therapy are essential in the treatment of multiple fungal infections.

Keywords : Mucor, Aspergillus, Candida, Lung.
