Abstract

A large variety of underlying conditions and diseases have been associated with zygomycosis. The most common ones include leukemia or lymphoma, burns, renal failure, septicemia, malnutrition, diabetes, cancer, chemotherapy, organ transplantation, and corticosteroid administration. While being ubiquitous in the environment and relatively harmless to healthy individuals, Zygomycetes can be fatal in the immunocompromised patient, especially if untreated or if treatment is delayed.
