Summaries for Mucormycosis

CDC : 3 Mucormycosis (sometimes called zygomycosis) is a serious but rare fungal infection caused by a group of molds called mucormycetes. These fungi live throughout the environment, particularly in soil and in decaying organic matter, such as leaves, compost piles, or rotten wood.1 People get mucormycosis by coming in contact with the fungal spores in the environment. For example, the lung or sinus forms of the infection can occur after someone breathes in spores. These forms of mucormycosis usually occur in people who have health problems or take medicines that lower the body's ability to fight germs and sickness.3,6 Mucormycosis can also develop on the skin after the fungus enters the skin through a cut, scrape, burn, or other type of skin trauma.

MalaCards based summary : Mucormycosis, also known as zygomycosis, is related to aspergillosis and fusariosis. An important gene associated with Mucormycosis is CSF3 (Colony Stimulating Factor 3), and among its related pathways/superpathways are MAPK signaling pathway and Hematopoietic cell lineage. The drugs Miconazole and Voriconazole have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include sinuses, brain and lungs of immunocompromised people, and related phenotypes are hematopoietic system and digestive/alimentary

Disease Ontology : 12 An opportunistic mycosis that results in fungal infection located in sinuses, located in brain, or located in lungs of immunocompromised people, has material basis in Mucorales molds.
