Mukormykose als Ursache einer Weichgewebsnekrose der Gesichtshaut - Differentialdiagnose und Therapie
Leitner, Christoph/Hoffmann, Jürgen/Zerfowski, Martin/Faul, Christoph/Klingel, Karin/Reinert, Siegmar
Spontaneous necrotising soft tissue lesions of the face can be differentiated into necrotising cellulitis, necrotising fasciitis and myonecrosis. Each type can be caused by a single or a variety of different agents.
Early recognition and adequate management are mandatory in order to reduce mortality as many of these lesions are rapidly progressive infections causing extensive necrosis of the subcutaneous tissues followed by gangrene of the skin and systemic toxicity.
This paper reports about a case of a rarely seen spontaneous necrotic soft tissue lesion of the face caused by the Mucormycosis causing agent Absidia Corymbifera and highlights the management of it.

Keywords: Mukormykose, nekrotisierende Läsion, Haut, plastische Chirurgie
