The cases of black fungus may have reduced, but a unique case has come to the fore. Involvement of black fungus has been found in the lungs for the first time. Doctors say that we had read about it in books that black fungus ie Mikor mycosis can also reach the lungs, but had never seen its patient. Usually this disease infects the jaw, eye and then the brain through the sinus.
Dr. Anand Choudhary, Professor of ENT Department of Civil Hospital said that so far more than 550 black fungus patients have been treated, but this is the first case when black fungus has developed in a patient’s lung. The patient is undergoing treatment and is stable. Amphoteresin B injection is also being given. He has been shifted to Mikor mycosis ward.
