[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]

What is the mode of spread & who is at high risk?

 

These molds live throughout the environment. So, there is no particular source of contact though common sources of infections are soil, damp walls on old buildings etc.
Mucormycosis mainly affects people who have health problems or take medicines that lower the body’s ability to fight germs and sickness. It most commonly affects the sinuses or the lungs after inhaling fungal spores from the air. It can also occur on the skin after a cut, burn, or other type of skin injury.

 

SYMPTOMS
Depends on where in the body the fungus is growing:

 

RHINOCEREBRAL MUCORMYCOSIS:

 

• One-sided facial swelling
• Headache
• Nasal or sinus congestion
• Black lesions on the nasal bridge or upper inside the mouth that quickly become more severe
• Fever

 

PULMONARY MUCORMYCOSIS:
• Fever
• Cough
• Chest pain
• Shortness of breath

 

CUTANEOUS MUCORMYCOSIS:
• Blisters or ulcers on the skin and the infected area may turn black.
Other symptoms include
• pain
• warmth
• excessive redness or swelling around a wound.

 

GASTROINTESTINAL MUCORMYCOSIS:
• Abdominal pain
• Nausea and vomiting
• Gastrointestinal bleeding

 

DISSEMINATED MUCORMYCOSIS:
Typically occurs in people who are already sick from other medical conditions, so it can be difficult to know which symptoms are related to mucormycosis. Patients with disseminated infection in the brain can develop mental status changes or coma.

 

Conclusion:
As there are emerging cases of mucormycosis we need to know that the early diagnosis gives the better outcome
