Follicular and Hurthle cell carcinomas, with their angioinvasive
features, are more common culprits than is papillary carcinoma.
7) Infection control/ Early recognition of Mucor and prevention Aspergillus fungal infection, which allowed initiation of a clinical practice guideline designed to combat angioinvasive
Histologic examination of the specimens from the left sinuses found an atypical angioinvasive

Zygomycoses are severe angioinvasive
infections caused by common filamentous fungi, the zygomycetes.
Mucormycosis is an acute and often fatal opportunistic fungal infection; it often causes acute angioinvasive
infections in immunosuppressed patients, with mortality rates exceeding 60% (1).
Histopathologically, the fungus is angioinvasive
and causes widespread necrosis.
At first I thought that the insect was a red herring, but there are some case reports of insect bites initiating a cutaneous form of mucormycosis that invaded, became angioinvasive
, and caused necrosis.
