YEVENES-SOUPER, Francisco; DIAZ-REIHER, Marlene; FERNANDEZ-TORO, María de los Ángeles  y  DONOSO-HOFER, Francisca. Posterior maxillary mucormycosis, secondary to an exodontics: A case report and literature review. Int. j interdiscip. dent. [online]. 2021, vol.14, n.3, pp.271-273. ISSN 2452-5596.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S2452-55882021000300271.

Mucormycosis is described as an opportunistic and life-threatening fungal infection, being reported in the literature as the third in frequency, far behind candidiasis and aspergillosis. This infection is caused by fungi of the Mucorales family. We present the case of a man with Diabetes Mellitus II with poor metabolic control who, after an extraction, presents a Maxillary Mucormycosis, with an atypical etiology and confirmed after biopsies and culture tests, demonstrating elements of the Mucor type. A partial maxillectomy was performed on the affected side as a treatment with a favorable outcome. This review highlights the importance of active search based on semiology and of complementary examinations, implying a correct diagnosis and prognosis of the disease.
