In present study starch hydrolyzing, non-toxigenic fungi were identified as Aspergillus, Penicillium, Fusarium, Zygomycete
, Actinomycete, Phaeoids and some remained unidentified.
Molecular tools for identification of zygomycetes
and diagnosis of zygomycosis.
To develop cutaneous zygomycosis breach of skin is essential for the zygomycetes
to enter, as intact cutaneous barrier serves as structural defense against tissue invasion.

Spectrum of zygomycete
species identified in clinically significant specimens in the United States.
In 2000, Kontoyiannis et al suggested that a respiratory culture positive for a zygomycete
was typically associated with a steady decline to rapid death.
As recently underlined (25), a culture positive with a zygomycete
does not always mean infection; many gastrointestinal cases reported in the PMSI may be false-positive cases resulting from laboratory contamination.
Cokeromyces recurvatus is an uncommonly encountered dimorphic zygomycete
in the order Mucorales that was first described in 1950.
Examination by microscopy showed nonseptate sterile hyphae typical of a zygomycete
. The fungal isolate was sent to the National Reference Center for Mycology and Antifungals at the Institut Pasteur, Paris.
In tissue and in culture, clinically significant zygomycete
hyphae can often be distinguished from other invasive hyaline molds by their greater width and obtuse branching pattern[1,4,5] A term often used by surgical pathologists and frequently encountered in the literature, aseptate, is also ascribed to the zygomycetes
