  • Zygomycosis is the broadest term to refer to infections caused by bread mold fungi of the zygomycota phylum. However, because zygomycota has been identified as polyphyletic, and is not included in modern fungal classification systems, the diseases that zygomycosis can refer to are better called by their specific names: mucormycosis (after Mucorales), phycomycosis (after Phycomycetes) and basidiobolomycosis (after Basidiobolus). These rare yet serious and potentially life-threatening fungal infections usually affect the face or oropharyngeal (nose and mouth) cavity. Zygomycosis type infections are most often caused by common fungi found in soil and decaying vegetation. While most individuals are exposed to the fungi on a regular basis, those with immune disorders (immunocompromised) are more prone to fungal infection. These types of infections are also common after natural disasters, such as tornadoes or earthquakes, where people have open wounds that have become filled with soil or vegetative matter. The condition may affect the gastrointestinal tract or the skin. In non-trauma cases, it usually begins in the nose and paranasal sinuses and is one of the most rapidly spreading fungal infections in humans. Common symptoms include thrombosis and tissue necrosis. Treatment consists of prompt and intensive antifungal drug therapy and surgery to remove the infected tissue. The prognosis varies vastly depending upon an individual patient's circumstances. (en)

  • La zigomicosi è un'infezione fungina causata da alcuni zigomiceti. Il nome della patologia può variare a seconda del tipo di agente patogeno: si tratta infatti di entomoftoromicosi se si ha a che fare con alcuni funghi dell'ordine degli Entomophthorales (in particolare, di basidiobolomicosi quando il fungo in questione è un Basidiobolus) e di mucormicosi se il fungo che infetta l'organismo è dell'ordine dei Mucorales. Un'altra denominazione della zigomicosi è "ficomicosi", derivante dal nome scientifico dei Phycomycetes, ormai considerato obsoleto nonché sinonimo proprio del phylum Zygomycota. La zigomicosi è causata da due ordini di funghi: i Mucorales e gli Entomophthorales, anche se il primo tipo è molto più comune. * Ordine Mucorales (mucormycosis) * Famiglia Mucoraceae * Absidia (Absidia corymbifera) * Apophysomyces (Apophysomyces elegans) * Mucor (Mucor indicus) * Rhizomucor (Rhizomucor pusillus) * Rhizopus (Rhizopus oryzae) * Famiglia Cunninghamellaceae * Cunninghamella (Cunninghamella bertholletiae) * Famiglia Thamnidiaceae * Cokeromyces (Cokeromyces recurvatus) * Famiglia Saksenaeaceae * Saksenaea (Saksenaea vasiformis) * Famiglia Syncephalastraceae * Syncephalastrum (Syncephalastrum racemosum) * Ordine Entomophthorales (entomophthoramycosis) * Famiglia Basidiobolaceae * Basidiobolus (Basidiobolus ranarum) * Famiglia Ancylistaceae * Conidiobolus (Conidiobolus coronatus/Conidiobolus incongruus) (it)
