Abstract

We report, to the best of our knowledge the first case of prosthetic mitral valve mucormycosis caused by Mucor species in an 18-year-old female after mitral valve replacement. She was successfully treated with surgery and antifungal treatment. Mucormycosis was documented by direct demonstration, isolation and histopathological findings of the fungus from embolus and prosthetic mitral valve thrombus.
