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...

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"...

REVIEW
E M Piette
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...
