In brief: Mucormycosis
In most cases, the prognosis of mucormycosis is poor and has varied mortality rates depending on its form and severity.
Iv anti-fungal medicines, such as amphotericn b, and aggressive surgery should be done immediately to remove all dead and infected tissue. Surgery may involve removal of the palate, parts of the nose, or parts of the eye. The less extensive, the more chance of survival.
