Rhizopus microsporus

Rhizopus microsporus columella.
Species of the mucoralean genus Rhizopus are very relevant to society, in several respects. They are known as spoilage organisms,contaminating a variety of foodstuffs and agricultural
products during storage and transport. Because of off-odors, unwanted discolorations, taste defects and toxicity, and the rapid growth of the organisms, spoilage may be considerable. They are also known as agents of human and animal diseases. Zygomycosis and mucormycosis are terms that have been used interchangeably in the medical literature to describe these frequently lethal infections , mucormycosis will be applied in the present paper. Mucormycosis is a fungal emergency that nearly always occurs in patients with severe defects in host defense and/or with systemic debilitation due to increased serum iron, diabetic ketoacidosis, stem cell transplant, neutropenia, organ transplant, hematologic malignancies, or birth prematurity. The infection presents clinically as rhinocerebral, pulmonary, gastrointestinal or disseminated disease. Although mucormycosis is much less common than other opportunistic fungal infections by e.g. Candida or Aspergillus, mortality of
mucormycosis is much higher.
