Zosteriform zygomycosis

Academic Article

Abstract

  • We describe a patient with zygomycosis that resembled herpes zoster infection. The diagnosis was readily made with a potassium hydroxide preparation that revealed sparsely to nonseptate hyphae. The patient responded to combination antifungal therapy with amphotericin B and fluconazole. The clinical response correlated with antifungal susceptibility test results. © 1995.
