Neonatal intestinal mucormycosis may mimic and is mistaken as NEC. Diagnosis remains difficult and mortality is high. Unlike NEC where there may be a place for watchful conservative management, urgent aggressive surgical debridement and resection along with systemic antifungal are necessary in GIM. This case is reported to illustrate lessons learnt to improve survival in an otherwise almost universally fatal condition due to missed and delayed diagnosis.
