Sarkar K*, Gonjhu D, Haldar SN, De (Pati) A, Pramanik N

ABSTRACT

Zygomycosis (mucormycosis) is a devastating fungal infection seen mostly in immune-compromised patients or in association with prolonged neutropenia. It often results in a fatal outcome mainly due to the difficulty of early diagnosis and its drug resistance. So, prompt diagnosis is challenging and influences outcome. Treatment involves a combination of surgical and medical therapies. Amphotericin B is the main drug for medical management of mucormycosis, although other agents have been used. This paper reports a case of a middle aged immunocompetent man with rinofacial zygomycosis whose final treatment was successful after antifungal and surgical treatment.

Keywords: Zygomycosis, immunocompetent, Amphotericin B.
