Colonic mucormycosis in solid organ transplantation: Case report and review of the literature (colonic mucormycosis after DDLT)

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Mucormycosis is an opportunistic fungal infection that can occur throughout the body and carries a high mortality. Colonic mucormycosis is an uncommon form of the disease whose successful treatment relies upon a high degree of clinical suspicion and early, often empiric, therapy. We report colonic mucormycosis in a liver transplant patient and review the literature on colonic mucormycosis in solid organ transplant recipients.
