Cunninghamella bertholletiae: an unusual agent of zygomycosis



Cunninghamella bertholletiae: an unusual agent of zygomycosis



Southern Medical Journal 83(9): 1088-1091



A case of phycomycosis is reported in a 55-yr-old man with chronic lymphocytic leukaemia. When C. bertholletiae was cultured from an open lung biopsy, amphotericin B (1 mg/kg) was added to the patient's antibiotic regimen. Two days later, a CT scan of the head revealed a low-density lesion and echocardiogram indicated a probable vegetation of the aortic valve. Despite continued antifungal therapy, the patient's condition deteriorated and he died.
