Pleural mucormycosis (zygomycosis)

Pleural mucormycosis (zygomycosis)

Archives of Pathology & Laboratory Medicine 110(5): 441-442

A biliary drainage catheter that traversed the right pleural space was associated with unilateral pleural infection by an unidentified zygomycete that caused pleural mucormycosis. The fungal infection was confined to the pleura and immediately subjacent lung. We interpreted these findings as a fungal wound infection that unfortunately involved a major body cavity.
