A member of the order Mucorales
, it has subsequently been reported as being isolated from decaying wood, a washroom of a hospital, and from clinical wound and stool samples where colonization was suspected [2, 3].
Melanogaster spp., Sclerogaster spp., Cortinariacea (order Agaricales, gilled mushrooms), and order Mucorales
(pin molds) each were identified in 1 sample.
Hematopoietic stem cell transplant [HSCT] recipients have a high risk of acquiring invasive fungal infection [IFI] by virtue of prolonged myelosuppression.1 Mucormycosis is a devastating invasive fungal disease whose incidence has increased during the past decade.2,3 This mold belongs to the order Mucorales
, which includes Mucor, Rhizopus, and Absidia.4-6
Mucormycosis, an infection caused by fungi of the class zygomycetes, order mucorales
, is usually found in immunocompromised patients, with disease manifestations differing for each of the underlying condition.
Pulmonary mucormycosis is an opportunistic pulmonary fungal infection from a fungus belonging to the order Mucorales
. It should be distinguished from the related counterpart invasive pulmonary aspergillosis (IPA) as modern first-line antifungals typically used for aspergillosis lack activity against fungi causing mucormycosis.
The term mucormycosis is used to refer to infections due to molds belonging to the order mucorales
In particular, high humidity and temperatures of [approximately equal to] 27[degrees]C have been reported as the optimal conditions for growth of mold from the order Mucorales
Gastrointestinal mucormycosis is an extremely rare fungal infection caused by mold in the order Mucorales
. It occurs predominantly in low birth weight infants, patients with diarrhea and malnutrition, and those receiving peritoneal dialysis; mortality is 85% (1).
Mucormycosis is caused by fungus of the order Mucorales
and is one of the most rapidly fatal fungal infections known.
Cokeromyces recurvatus is an uncommonly encountered dimorphic zygomycete in the order Mucorales
that was first described in 1950.
Till two decades back zygomycosis due to fungi belonging to the class Zygomycetes and the order Mucorales
was considered rare fatal opportunistic fungal infection.
Renal mucormycosis--Renal mucormycosis infection is caused by fungi of the order Mucorales
and is uncommon among the HIV population, but is associated with IV drug abuse and a low CD4 count.
