Mucormycosis in COVID-19 patients: A case series

Author(s): Anshu Singhal

Mucormycosis is an opportunistic, potentially lethal, angioinvasive infection caused by many ribbon-like, broad, non-septate fungal elements of order Mucorales. Its predilection to blood vessels favors rapid and extensive spread to tissues and organs. Diabetes mellitus is the most common underlying risk factor followed up by group of patients with hematopoietic stem cells and solid organ transplant recipients on immunosuppressive therapy, Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) infection, and patients on voriconazole therapy.
