Rhizopus microsporus columella

Rhizopus microsporis 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.
