Mucormycosis: The Black Curse of the Ill

Author(s): Kunika Thakare, Kumar Gaurav Chabra*, Amit Reche, Priyanka Paul Madhu and Alisha Chagani


Mucormycosis is an angio-invasive infection caused by the Mucorales fungus. Although it is an uncommon condition, it is becoming more common among immunocompromised people. Primary disease is usually caused by an airborne infection that starts in the upper or lower airways and leads to sinusitis, rhino cerebral Mucormycosis, or pulmonary infection. Although infection dissemination to the skin, brain, and other locations is uncommon, direct infection extension to adjacent areas is common if patients do not receive vigorous surgical and medical treatment. Rhino-orbit cerebral, cutaneous, disseminated, gastrointestinal, and pulmonary forms can all be found. Despite the intensive therapy, there is an overall higher death rate. The primary goal and purpose of this study is to provide an overview of Mucormycosis, as well as the diagnostic and therapeutic options.
