Mucormicosis

emDocs - July 15, 2015 - Author: Long B - Editor: Koyfman A & Bright J
"Summary: 
Mucormycosis has a variety of forms: rhino-orbital-cerebral, pulmonary, and GI. Immunosuppressed patients, particularly diabetics and patients with hematologic malignancies, make up the majority of patients. The organisms are found all over, and normal hosts are able to fight off infection. If infection occurs, fungi invade tissue, causing infarction and necrosis with vascular invasion. Diagnosis requires organism identification by histopathology, but if suspected, begin treatment with lipid formulation of amphotericin B. Surgical debridement is the second necessary arm of treatment."
