Rhinomaxillary mucormycosis in a kidney transplant patient

Oral Surgery, Oral Medicine, and Oral Pathology
S G Cohen, M S Greenberg

Abstract

Rhinomaxillary mucormycosis is an uncommon but important pathologic entity with a rapidly fatal course if treatment is delayed. This is of particular interest to dentists, since many of the earliest clinical signs appear in the oral and perioral regions. Successful therapy demands early diagnosis by biopsy, institution of amphotericin B therapy, and surgical débridement. A case of nonfatal rhinomaxillary mucormycosis is presented, and all other reported cases in transplant patients are reviewed.

Allogenic & Autologous Therapies

Allogenic therapies are generated in large batches from unrelated donor tissues such as bone marrow. In contrast, autologous therapies are manufactures as a single lot from the patient being treated. Here is the latest research on allogenic and autologous therapies.
