BRANDAO, Ajacio et al. Zygomycosis following liver transplantation in adults: report of three cases. Rev. Soc. Bras. Med. Trop. [online]. 2003, vol.36, n.6, pp.729-733. ISSN 1678-9849.

We report three cases of zygomycosis following liver transplant in a series of 300 patients. Diagnosis was determined via anatomicopathological examination (on necropsy in two cases and during surgery in one case). The disease had different manifestations: rhinomaxillary, gastrointestinal and, in one case, it compromised the liver artery anastomosis. In this case, surgical removal of the affected region and use of amphotericin B achieved resolution.

Keywords : Zygomycosis; Fungal infection; Liver transplantation; Renal transplantation.
