Abstract

In our increasingly immunocompromised populations, zygomycosis is becoming more common. It occurs in two forms. Mucormycosis is an acute, necrotic, rapidly progressive disease of the immunocompromised patient that may lead quickly to death. Entomophthoromycosis is a chronic, slowly progressive subcutaneous disease seen mostly in immunocompetent patients living in tropical climates.
