Mucormycosis Infection Research Articles

Mucormycosis (previously called zygomycosis) is a serious but rare fungal infection caused by a group of molds called mucormycetes. These molds live throughout the environment. Mucormycosis mainly affects people who have health problems or take medicines that lower the body's ability to fight germs and sickness.

Mucormycosis is a type of fungal infection. It’s relatively rare, but also very serious. Formally known as zygomycosis, this infection tends to occur most often if you have weakened immunity from an illness or health condition. It’s important to get treatment. If left untreated, mucormycosis can be fatal.

Mucormycosis (zygomycosis) is a serious, potentially deadly fungal infection that's infrequently diagnosed. Many different fungi may cause mucormycosis; infections with the Mucoraceae family of fungi predominate as causes; hence, many investigators use the term mucormycosis instead of zygomycosis. 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 and signs first appear usually in the body area infected and may occur as follows: fever, headache, reddish and swollen
