Sir,

We thank the author [1] for the interest given for our article. [2]

Patient did not have history of smoking, alcoholism and peptic ulcer. Most of the literature with gastric mucormycosis have single large ulcer. Single large ulcer is mentioned rather than multiple small ulcers in literature mentioning steroid intake has the predisposing factor. In most of the references they have mentioned, upper gastrointestital endoscopy has revealed single ulcer. Even in the largest series of upper gastrointestinal mucormycosis stating peptic ulcer as the predisposing factor does not clearly distinguish between a primary ulcerating fungal infection and a super infection of pre-existing peptic ulcer. [3]
