Abstract

Due to the current COVID – 19[1] situation, the word Mucormycosis[2] is falling on everyone's ears. So, here we will look at exactly what is Mucormycosis ? And how it happens ? Symptoms of Mucormycosis. In Mythology, gods were cursed by sages, sometimes humans were cursed by gods, sometimes Gandharvas and Apsaras were cursed and then cursed. Let those cursed people be freed because of those curses. Mankind todays is cursed with the corona virus. Fungal infections, including mucormycosis, aspergillosis and invasive candidiasis, have been reported in patients with severe COVID-19 or those recovering from the disease and have been associated with severe illness and death. India has reported a recent surge in mucormycosis cases. Mucormycosis is a highly aggressive fungal infection affecting diabetic[4], immuno-compromised[5], and, occasionally, healthy patients. This infection is associated with significant mortality. Mucormycosis is an angio invasive infection that occurs due to the fungi mucorales. It is a rare disease but increasingly recognized in immunocompromised patients. It can be categorized into rhino-orbitocerebral [3][31], cutaneous[30], disseminated, gastrointestinal, and pulmonary types.[22] Overall increased mortality rate is reported, even though the aggressive treatment is given. The main aim and purpose of this review related to overview and Etiopathogenesis of Mucormycosis, fatality of rhinocerebral Mucormycosis and recent advances in diagnostic and treatment methods.[33]
