Aim: The study aimed to identify quantitative parameters that increase the risk of rhino-orbito-cerebral mucormycosis, and subsequently developed a machine learning model that can anticipate susceptibility to developing this condition. Methods: Clinicopathological data from 124 patients were used to quantify their association with COVID-19-associated mucormycosis (CAM) and subsequently develop a machine learning model to predict its likelihood. Results: Diabetes mellitus, noninvasive ventilation and hypertension were found to have statistically significant associations with radiologically confirmed CAM cases. Conclusion: Machine learning models can be used to accurately predict the likelihood of development of CAM, and this methodology can be used in creating prediction algorithms of a wide variety of infections and complications.

Fungal infections caused by the Mucorales order of fungi usually target patients with a weakened immune system. They are usually also associated with abnormal blood sugar states, such as in diabetic patients. Recent work during the COVID-19 outbreak suggested that excessive steroid use and diabetes may be behind the rise in fungal infections caused by Mucorales, known as mucormycosis, in India, but little work has been done to see whether we can predict the risk of mucormycosis. This study found that these fungal infections need not necessarily be caused by Mucorales' species, but by a wide variety of fungi that target patients with weak immune systems. Secondly, we found that diabetes, breathing-assisting devices and high blood pressure states had associations with COVID-19-associated fungal infections. Finally, we were able to develop a machine learning model that showed high accuracy when predicting the risk of development of these fungal infections.
