Osteomyelitis is defined as inflammation of the medullary cavities, haversian system and adjacent cortex of bone. Osteomyelitis involving maxilla is quite rare when compared to that of mandible. Fungal osteomyelitis is very rarely seen and documented in the maxillofacial area. It is devastating to patients if it is invasive in nature. A prospective study was undertaken from December 2011 to December 2013. Biopsied hard tissue bits were decalcified and sections were stained with H&E, periodic acid Schiff and Grocott methenamine silver...

Rehabilitation of maxillofacial defect patients is a challenging task. The most common prosthetic treatment problem with such patients is, getting adequate retention, stability, and support. In cases of large maxillofacial defect, movement of the prosthesis is inevitable. The primary objectives in rehabilitating the maxillofacial defect patients are to restore the function of mastication, deglutition, speech, and to achieve normal orofacial appearance. This clinical report describes maxillofacial prosthetic rehabilitation of large midfacial defect including orbit along with its contents, zygoma and soft tissues including half of the nose, cheeks, upper lip of left side, accompanying postsurgical microstomia and orofacial communication, which resulted from severe fungal infection mucormycosis...

Rhinocerebral mucormycosis (RCM) is an opportunistic, potentially life-threatening fungal disease. This infective disease invades not only the facial sinuses, but also the maxilla, zygoma, and rhino-cerebral structures with a massive destruction of the facial skeletons and soft tissue. This disease progresses within various underlying diseases, such as diabetes mellitus, hematologic malignancy, renal failure, and systemic immunodepression. The relationship between mucormycosis and these underlying conditions have been discussed extensively in the literature...

Rhinocerebral or rhino-orbitocerebral (mucormycosis) zygomycosis (ROCZ) usually occurs among patients with poorly controlled diabetes mellitus (especially those with ketoacidosis), solid malignancies, iron overload or extensive burns, in patients undergoing treatment with glucocorticosteroid agents, or in patients with neutropenia related to haematologic malignancies. The disease process starts with inhalation of the fungus into the paranasal sinuses. The fungus may spread to invade the palate, sphenoid sinus, cavernous sinus, orbits or cranially to invade the brain...

Mucormycosis is harmless to a healthy person, but can cause opportunistic infections in immunocompromised patients, and once it has invaded internal organs is frequently fatal. Traumatic optic neuropathy is a rare complication of maxillofacial trauma. Management is controversial, and there are no treatment guidelines in the literature. The main methods of treatment of this condition employed today are high-dose corticosteroids and surgical optic nerve decompression, either alone or in combination. In this case, the patient was in good health, but received high-dose corticosteroids for 2 weeks, which temporarily diminished immune response and permitted the development of mucormycosis...

This report presents a case of lethal invasive mucormycosis, a rare fungal infection, which predominantly affects immunocompromised patients, and is reported in a 57-year-old female who presented with cerebral abscess. The patient, who had undiagnosed diabetes mellitus, presented with extensive right hemifacial deficiency of the bones and soft tissues consequent to surgical resection of the ethmoid-spheno-maxillo-orbital district after mucormycosis. A reconstruction with a pectoral pedunculated flap was performed...

PURPOSE: Maxillary reconstruction after maxillectomy remains a great challenge for the reconstructive oral and maxillofacial surgeon. This article is a clinical retrospective analysis of patients reconstructed with zygomaticus implants after maxillary ablation. PATIENTS AND METHODS: The design of the study was a retrospective review of 9 patients requiring near-total or total maxillectomy for pathologic reasons. Clinical records, photographs, and radiographs were studied...

PURPOSE: This study investigated the incidence of deaths from oral and maxillofacial infections encountered in a 3-year period. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A survey was conducted nationwide. Questionnaires were constructed and sent to dental or OMS Departments of all medical centers, regional hospitals, and provincial and municipal hospitals in Taiwan. Only those infections severe enough for hospital care were studied. More than half of the departments replied, including all major hospitals...

Mucormycosis is a rare and often lethal infection caused by an opportunistic fungus of the Phycomycetes class. This microorganism is a saprophytic aerobial fungus common in nature and in oral mucosae, nose, paranasal sinus and throat. Mucormycosis has been described in various clinical forms: rhinocerebral, pulmonary, systemic, cerebral and cutaneous, always in immunodepressed patients, with rapid evolution and high rate of mortality. However, rare cases involving maxillofacial area are described in healthy patients with benign evolution and good prognosis as in a case observed at the Department of Maxillofacial Surgery of the University of Naples "Federico II"...

Phycomycosis infections caused by the fungi Rhizopus and Mucor are commonly termed mucormycosis. Mucormycosis infections exhibit a rapidly progressive course characterized by angioinvasion and necrosis. The rhinocerebral form has been described thoroughly in the literature. However, there exists another order of Phycomycetes, the Entomophthorales, which rarely cause clinical disease. Their infection is indolent and is associated with granulomatous inflammation and a protracted clinical course. Presented here is a rare case of suspected Canidiobolus coronato infection occurring in the maxillofacial region of a previously healthy male...

Mucormycosis is a serious infection with a fulminating course caused by opportunistic fungi. The territory most frequently affected is the maxillofacial region. The disease develops in patients with severe metabolic and immunological disorders. We present two cases that illustrate its severity and the need for early diagnosis and aggressive treatment.

It is interesting and useful to review the different mycoses which can affect oral and maxillofacial tissues. In this review, all mycoses which can involve these tissues are described, based on a simple classification into superficial and deep mycoses. The superficial mycoses described are the dermatophytoses, Tinea, the piedra, but also the candidiasis, which are superficial opportunistic infections. The deep mycoses are subdivided into subcutaneous, systemic, and opportunistic mycoses. Subcutaneous fungal infections are sporotrichosis, lobomycosis, rhinosporidiosis, entomophthoromycosis, and chromomycosis...

Maxillofacial infections, either surgical or nonsurgical, are relatively infrequent, probably because of the excellent regional blood supply. Established infections are usually recognized early owing to the obvious signs of infection and the early symptoms. Fortunately, most infections respond to the penicillin group of antibiotics. However, spread of maxillofacial infections may be disastrous, not only locally and regionally but possibly even systemically. There is always a chance of a lethal complication from a maxillofacial infection...
