entomophthoromycosis

 
any disease in humans or other animals caused by fungi of the order entomophthorales; human infections usually occur in apparently physiologically and immunologically normal individuals, although opportunistic infections also occur.
entomophthoromycosis basidio´bolae a chronic infection caused by Basidiobolus ranarum, in which gradually enlarging granulomas form in the subcutaneous tissues of the arms, chest, and trunk. Multiple purulent ulcers may develop; seen in children and adolescents in tropical areas of Indonesia, India, and Africa. Called also basidiobolomycosis.
entomophthoromycosis conidio´bolae infection by Conidiobolus coronatus, a form of zygomycosis usually involving the nose and paranasal sinuses (rhinoentomophthoromycosis). Sometimes, especially in weak or immunocompromised patients, it can spread to the central nervous system and cause fatal rhinocerebral zygomycosis.

Entomophthorales

(en'tō-mof'thōr-al'ēz),
An order of the fungal class Zygomycetes. The genera include Conidiobolus, which causes a chronic granulomatous inflammation of a nasal and paranasal sinus mucosa (conidiobolomycosis) and Basidiobolus, which causes a chronic subcutaneous granuloma (basidiobolomycosis). When conidiobolomycosis and basidiobolomycosis are considered together, they are called entomophthoramycosis.

Organisms of the class Zygomycetes, which includes the orders Mucorales and Entomophthorales, are well-known causes of infection in the upper and lower respiratory tract, orbit, meninges, brain, and other sites.[1] These organisms most frequently infect individuals with defects in immunity.[2,3] They are therefore commonly encountered by medical microbiologists, as well as by surgical and autopsy pathologists.
