Abstract

Background : With respect to low prevalence of immunocompromised infectious diseases and their related difficulties in diagnosis and treatment, in the present study we review our experience with 3 adult and 3 infant patients with rhinocerebral mucormycosis. Materials and methods : Initial data including demographic features, clinical, laboratory and radiologic manifestations, therapeutic approach and clinical course of 6 cases of rhinocerebral mucormycosis were reviewed. Three patients died and 3 improved. Conclusion : Diabetes mellitus and metabolic cirrhosis were the most common predisposing factors. Rhinocerebral manifestations were present in all patients. Biopsy was the gold standard for diagnosis and the most efficient therapeutic approach is appropriate usage of immunosuppressive agents
