Summaries for Mucormycosis

CDC : 3 Mucormycosis (previously called zygomycosis) is a serious but rare fungal infection caused by a group of molds called mucormycetes. These molds live throughout the environment. Mucormycosis mainly affects people with weakened immune systems and can occur in nearly any part of the body. It most commonly affects the sinuses or the lungs after inhaling fungal spores from the air, or 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 acquired immunodeficiency syndrome. An important gene associated with Mucormycosis is IFNG (Interferon Gamma), and among its related pathways/superpathways are Hematopoietic Stem Cell Differentiation Pathways and Lineage-specific Markers and Amoebiasis. The drugs Posaconazole and Miconazole have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include lung, liver and bone, and related phenotype is renal/urinary system.

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.
