ABSTRACT

We update results from the Mycotic Infections in COVID-19 (MUNCO) Registry, May-September 2021. Data collection from May to September 2021 yielded 728 cases from India, Nepal, Bangladesh, Thailand, and the United States. The cases consisted of mostly mucormycosis (97.6%), primarily rhinocerebral, and were analyzed to investigate clinical characteristics associated with negative outcomes. Patients were mostly diabetic (85%) and male (76%), with significant mortality (11.7%). All patients received treatment of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) as well as antifungal treatment. The crude mortality rate was 11.3% for mucormycosis and 22.7% for mixed infections. This study demonstrates the utility of online databases in the collection of high-caliber data.

ABSTRACT

Background: Due to the surge of post COVID mucormycosis in India there has been a significant patient load seen in hospitals we have observed that mucor is not the only culprit and there has been other fungi like aspergillus and candida, who have led to increased morbidity and mortality. Aim: To conduct a retrospective analysis on laboratory reports of specimens sent after surgical intervention of patients admitted with mucormycosis and to identify the weightage of different fungal infections in the post COVID era. Materials and Methods: It is a hospital based retrospective review of mycology and histopathology reports of post COVID rhino orbital mucormycosis patients referred from ophthalmology, ear nose throat surgery, oral maxillofacial surgery, neurosurgery department of mahatma gandhi memorial medical college, Indore, Madhya Pradesh from 1 June to 7 July 2021. Result: Out of 240 samples sent for histopathology examination, 1.6% samples showed mucormycosis with secondary aspergillosis while 98.33% samples showed primarily mucormycosis likewise 270 KOH mount reported around 8.51% mucormycosis with secondary aspergillosis, 4.81% reported primary aspergillosis, 72.15% reported primarily mucormycoses. Conclusion: We acknowledge that aspergillus and candida has contributed significantly in post covid mycoses and that mucor is not the only culprit. © 2022 Innovative Publication, All rights reserved.

ABSTRACT

Introduction: Rhino-cerebral Mucormycosis (RCM), in the pre-Coronavirus Disease-2019 (COVID-19) era, was thought to be solely associated with an immunocompromised state. However,anunforeseenoutbreakinthenumberofmucormycosis cases was seen with the increase in Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Corona Virus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) infection. Aim: To study and investigate the clinical characteristics, imaging findings, associated risk factors, and clinical outcomes in COVID-19 associated mucormycosis. Materials and Methods: A retrospective cohort study was conducted comprising 480 cases of COVID-19 associated mucormycosis who presented to the institution between April 2020 and September 2020. The clinical and radiological data were studied and analysed. results: Out of a total of 480 cases, 443 (92.29%) were found to suffering from diabetes mellitus and 392 patients (81.66%) had a history of steroids intake in the studied population. Facial or per orbital swelling followed by pain were the most frequent presenting complaints found in 188 (39.16%) and 162 (33.75%) patients, respectively. Nasal septum and middle turbinate were the most common sites of disease involvement on nasal endoscopic examination. On radiological imaging, maxillary (438;91.25%) was the most commonly involved sinus followed by ethmoids (395;82.29%). Premaxillary/retroantral fat and orbits were the most common sites of extra sinonasal spread of infection found in 278 (57.91%) and 244 (50.83%) patients, respectively. About 238 (49.58%) patients showed bony erosion and dehiscence. Intracranial complications were seen in 73 (15.21%) patients. Glycated Haemoglobin (HbA1c) levels showed significant value with higher disease staging. Oxygen supplementation was frequently associated with extrasinus spread of infection. A total of 44 (9.17%) patients succumbed to death despite aggressive antifungal treatment. conclusion: COVID-19 associated RCM shows frequent and extensive spread to extrasinus regions, especially with uncontrolled diabetes mellitus, steroid administration, and oxygen supplementation. High clinical suspicion, early imaging, and prompt institution of antifungal therapy can aid in reducing mortality rate.

ABSTRACT

The World Health Organization (WHO) declared the 2019-20 coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak a pandemic on 11th of March 2020. The Ministry of Health, Malaysia has made preparations for the involvement of all government hospitals, including some teaching hospitals. This report elaborates and discusses the early establishment of the Hospital Canselor Tuanku Muhriz Crisis Preparedness and Response Centre (HCTM CPRC), highlighting how teaching hospitals function in handling the clinical and epidemiological management of COVID-19 among hospital staff. The setting comprises of four critical functions of the HCTM CPRC, namely case investigation, close contact tracing, surveillance for data reporting and risk communication. This report highlighted that a CPRC in teaching hospitals benefits not only the patients and the hospital administration but also all hospital staff, especially in managing COVID-19 pandemic emergency crisis. © 2021 Penerbit Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia.
