KEGG   DISEASE: Mucormycosis
Entry
H02033                      Disease                                

Name
Mucormycosis
  Supergrp
Zygomycosis [DS:H01503]
Description
The class Zygomycetes is divided into two orders, Mucorales and Entomophthorales. These two orders produce dramatically different infections. Genera from the order Mucorales cause an angioinvasive infection called mucormycosis. Infection sites include the lungs, rhinocerebral spaces, sinuses, soft tissue, skin, gastrointestinal tract and bloodstream. Genera from the order Entomophthorales produce a chronic subcutaneous infection called entomophthoramycosis in immunocompetent patients.
