Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Mucormycosis can cause fatal infections in immuno-compromised persons. Rhinocerebral and pulmonary disease predominate. Diagnosis is challenging, dissemination frequent, and mortality high. Positive blood cultures are rare. We report the first case of central venous catheter-associated mucormycosis fungemia (Mucor circinelloides). Early diagnosis and multi-modal therapy led to clinical and microbiological cure.
