Pulmonary mucormycosis caused by Cunninghamella elegans in a patient with chronic myelogenous leukemia.


Cunninghamella elegans was cultured from autopsy materials of the infected lung of a patient with chronic myelogenous leukemia. The histologic sections revealed extensive growth of nonseptate, broad hyphae in and about the large and small arteries and veins, occluding the vessels. This case is believed to be the second in which human infection by C. elegans has been documented.
