Mucormycosis which is also called black fungus, because of the black hyphae or black colonies shown in the culture. This is considered a very serious fungal infection, usually observed in immunosuppressed patients. Symptoms of this disease depend upon the location or site of the infection in the body. These infections are most generally observed in the nose, sinuses, eye, and brain resulting in a runny nose, even one-sided facial swelling and pain, headache, fever, blurred vision, swollen and bulging of the eyes, and tissue loss. Other characteristics of the disease include infection of the lungs, stomach, and intestines, and skin. The most common transmission is through the spores of Mucorales molds, and the most common is through inhalation, contaminated food, or contamination from open wounds. These fungi are commonly found in soil, decomposing organic matter (such as rotten fruits and vegetables), and animal manure, but they generally do not affect humans.
