In this population, increases in the number of recorded cases could be linked to frequent prescription of antifungal drugs lacking activity against zygomycetes
, such as voriconazole and caspofungin (10,17,18,33-35).
To the Editor: The Zygomycetes
are a class of filamentous fungi that are ubiquitous in the environment.
Microscopic examination demonstrated vascular invasion by zygomycete
hyphae with associated infarcts.
showed white fluffy growth with no color on reverse side.
Comparison of three commercial assays and a modified disk diffusion assay with two broth microdilution reference assays for testing zygomycetes
, Aspergillus spp.
The biopsy specimen should be taken from the centre of the lesion especially from black eschar area and include subcutaneous fat, as zygomycetes
frequently invade blood vessels of the dermis and subcutis.
It is caused by fungi belonging to class Zygomycetes
, order Mucorales.

Zygomycosis the term used previously has become accurate based on a recent taxonomic reclassification that abolished Zygomycetes
as a class.
13) Speciation is important in order to determine the efficacy of the newer antifungals against the range of zygomycete
genera and species.
