Use of topical amphotericin in a case of refractory sino-orbital angioinvasive mucormycosis

Med Mycol Case Rep. 2021 Jul 5;33:21-25. doi: 10.1016/j.mmcr.2021.06.003. eCollection 2021 Sep.


The standard of care for treatment of sino-orbital mucormycosis involves aggressive surgical debridement and liposomal amphotericin, and the roles of adjunctive and topical therapies are less clear. Here we describe a case of severe refractory sino-orbital mucormycosis in an immunocompetent patient who responded to combination therapy with liposomal amphotericin, isavuconazole, micafungin, and topical amphotericin deoxycholate after failing to achieve negative surgical margins.
