Abstract

Invasive fungal infections are associated with high morbidity and mortality in immunocompromised patients. We describe an unusual case of concomitant invasive candidiasis and zygomycosis of the tongue and epiglottis that occurred in a young patient with neutropenia during chemotherapy for acute myelogenous leukemia and was successfully treated medically.
