Abstract

Orofacial fungal infections are occasionally seen in the immunocompromised patient. In this case, a patient with a relapse of an acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) developed a fatal mandibular infection. This may be the first reported case of a trifungal infection with zygomycosis, aspergillosis, and candidiasis in the oral cavity and the fifth mandibular zygomycosis case. Epidemiology, diagnosis, treatment and prognosis of zygomycosis infection are reviewed, along with the 4 mandibular zygomycosis cases found in the English literature.
