Abstract

CASE REPORT ON MUCORMYCOSIS

Jeffin Joseph*, Gikku Mariyam Varghese and Dr. Akhil Babu

 

ABSTRACT

Mucormycosis (zygomycosis) is a serious, deadly fungal infection mainly caused by Mucoraceae family of fungi. Risk factors include poorly controlled debilitating diseases (including diabetes), immunosuppression and trauma (usually serious injuries), and groups of such patients injured in natural disasters. Symptoms include fever, headache, reddish and swollen skin over nose and sinuses, visual problems, facial pain, coughing , shortness of breath, diffuse abdominal pain, and mental-status changes may occur. Preliminary diagnosis is made by patient history, physical exam, and the patient's risk factors for mucormycosis. Definitive diagnosis is made by identification of fungi in the patient's tissue. Almost all patients require surgical debridement of infected tissue, antifungal drugs (mainly amphotericin B), and good control of underlying medical problems such as diabetes.

Keywords: Mucormycosis, Fungal Infection, Amphotericin B.
