Orbital Decompression Turned Out to be an Eye Saver in COVID-19 Associated Rhino - Orbito Cerebral Mucormycosis - A Case Report

Rita Hepsi Rani .M | Uma .M

Abstract: Mucormycosis is one of the fulminant forms of angioinvasive fungal infection which progresses rapidly usually beginning in the nose and paranasal sinuses following inhalation of fungal spores followed by involvement of orbit and central nervous system later. It is caused by fungi of class zygomycetes, which includes genera Absidia, Mucor, Rhizomucor, and Rhizopus. In India, the incidence of mucormycosis is approximately 140 cases per million populations which is 80 times more than other developed countries. Early diagnosis and prompt treatment of this life - threatening disease greatly reduces the morbidity and mortality in these patients.
