Mucormycosis is a severe fungal infection that carries significant morbidity and mortality, particularly in immunocompromised patients. It is the third most common fungal infection after invasive aspergillosis and candidiasis. Primary risk factors for mucormycosis in patients with HSCT include severe graft-versus-host disease, use of high-dose corticosteroids, previous cytomegalovirus or respiratory viral disease, older age, complicated diabetes mellitus, malnutrition, and use of voriconazole either prophylactically or therapeutically.
