Zosteriform zygomycosis.

Academic Article


  • 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 non-septate hyphae. The patient responded to combination antifungal therapy with amphotericin B and fluconazole. The clinical response correlated with antifungal susceptibility test results.
