LID - 10.1097/MD.0000000000006360 [doi]
AB - RATIONALE: Gastrointestinal Mucormycosis (GIM) is a kind of opportunistic fungal
infection with poor prognosis. It usually occurs in patients with immune
deficiency. We reported a case of immunocompetent male patient. PATIENT CONCERNS:
This patient was presented as abdominal distension and gastrointestinal bleeding.
DIAGNOSES: A variety of hemostatic methods was ineffective to stop the bleeding.
The patient finally received laparotomy, and the jejunum lesions were found.
INTERVENTIONS: Pathological examination confirmed it to be gastrointestinal
mucormycosis in jejunum. OUTCOMES: However, after systemic anti-fungi therapy,
the patient died of septic shock. LESSONS: The diagnosis mainly relies on
pathological examination. Early diagnosis and early application of systemic
amphotericin B liposome were fundamental for improving the prognosis.
