Fatal outcome of rhino-orbital-cerebral mucormycosis due to bilateral internal carotid occlusion in a child after hematopoietic stem cell transplantation


Abela, Lucia; Toelle, Sandra P; Hackenberg, Annette; Scheer, Ianina; Güngör, Tayfun; Plecko, Barbara (2013). Fatal outcome of rhino-orbital-cerebral mucormycosis due to bilateral internal carotid occlusion in a child after hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. The Pediatric infectious disease journal, 32(10):1149-1150.

Abstract

Rhino-orbito-cerebral mucormycosis is a rare fulminant opportunistic fungal infection that particularly occurs in immunocompromised patients. We present a case of fatal invasive rhino-orbito-cerebral mucormycosis complicated by bilateral thrombotic occlusion of the internal carotid artery with consequent cerebral infarction in a 5-year-old boy after hematopoietic stem cell transplantation for acute pre-B-cell lymphoblastic leukemia.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
