Abstract

The accepted standard for treatment of zygomycetes is amphotericin B and surgical debridement, however recent data suggest that combined treatment modalities may be optimal. Newer anti-fungal agents show success in vitro and in animal models. We present the case of a 10-year-old boy with invasive Rhizopus microsporus var. rhizopodoformis who was successfully treated with a combination of modalities.
