The COVID-19 pandemic has revealed the new forms of invasive fungal infections. Without timely diagnosis and treatment, mortality reaches 100%. We analyzed 31 observed cases of invasive mucormycosis and aspergillosis in patients with COVID-19 to identify risk factors, the time sequence of the onset of clinical symptoms, and diagnostic features. Major predisposing factors were diabetes mellitus, immunosuppressive therapy, and oncological diseases.
