Mucormycosis Infection

 The infection caused by fungi in order of mucorales is defined as Mucormycosis Infection. Most common species involved in causing this type of infection are Rhizopus rhizomucor, cunninghamella, apophysomyces, saksenaea, absidia, muccor, and syncephal astrum. The major route of infection is through inhalation, ingestion and traumatic inoculation. The various types of Mucormycosis Infection are rhinocerebral Mucormycosis, pulmonary Mucormycosis, cutaneous Mucormycosis, gastrointestinal mucormycosis and disseminated mucormycosis. The miscallaneous forms of infection are endocarditis, pyelonephritis drug users, bones, mediastinum, kidneys, peritone patients with dialysis. High suspicion required in the treatment of Mucormycosis Infection. Mucormycosis workup involves biopsy-of involved tissue, swabs of tissue discharge are unreliable, CBC for neutropenia, ABG to correct acidosis and RBS-sugar control.
