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.
