Mucormycosis Treatments

Treatment

Options include:

  • Aggressive surgery—to remove all of the dead and/or infected tissue; early surgery may improve the prognosis
  • Antifungal therapy—IV antifungal medications may be used to kill the fungus throughout the body
Even with treatment the prognosis is usually poor.
