Lichtheimia corymbifera (JMRC:FSU:9682)

Zygomycetes are ubiquitously distributed fungi which may cause life-threatening infections. Although regarded as uncommon infections, the number of cases of zygomycosis has increased during the last years. Major risk groups for infections are patients with diabetes mellitus, hematological malignancy and transplantation recipients. The clinical presentations of zygomycosis include (sub)cutaneous, rhinocerebral, pulmonary and disseminating infections. Infections are often associated with a fast destruction of blood vessels and necrosis of the surrounding tissue. Especially the order Mucorales contain important pathogens like Rhizopus oryzae , Mucor circinelloides and Lichtheimia corymbifera (former Absidia corymbifera or Mycocladus corymbifer).
