Pulmonary Mucormycosis: A Respiratory Infection Caused by Filamentous Fungi

Mucormycosis, often known as black fungus infection, is a dangerous but uncommon fungal illness that can be deadly. If it is not identified and treated at an early stage, between 50 and 80 percent of individuals might die from it. Globally, respiratory tract infections cause for 4.3 million yearly fatalities, or one-third of infectious disease-associated mortality. The real impact of these is difficult to determine, because fungus infections of the respiratory system remain usually undetected. Most invasive fungal infections have significant fatality rates of >50% despite therapy. Invasive pulmonary infections brought on by Aspergillus species and, in some hospitals, Mucorales are regarded to be identical with fungal infections of the respiratory system.
