Zygomycosis is an acute or chronic life-threatening infection caused by several fungal agents belonging to the phylum Zygomycota. The instances of zygomycosis have been gradually increasing over the past decade. Zygomycetes are a relatively primitive class of fungi found in soil and decaying vegetation. Most infections are caused due to the fungi belonging to various genera such as Mucor (M. circinelloides), Rhizopus (R. arrhizus), Rhizomucor (R. pusillus), Absidia (A. corymbifera) and Cunninghamella (C. bertholletiae). These fungal infections usually affect the face or oropharyngeal (nose and mouth) cavity. The individuals with immune disorders are more prone to fungal infections and zygomycosis infections are more common after natural disasters such as earthquakes or tornadoes. People who have wounds and deal with soil on a regular basis have higher chances of suffering from infection. Zygomycosis infection may result in pustules, plaques, and abscesses or necrotic and ulcerated lesions. The common symptoms of zygomycosis include thrombosis, tissue necrosis, pulmonary and systemic infection. Zygomycosis can be treated with prompt and intensive antifungal drug therapy and surgery to remove the infected tissue.
Developments in medical facilities and new antifungal drugs ensure quality treatment for zygomycosis and hence, are anticipated to propel the growth for the zygomycosis treatment market in the long run.
