MADRIGAL, B. et al. Jejunal mucormycosis in a patient with Hodgkin's lymphoma. Rev. esp. enferm. dig. [online]. 2008, vol.100, n.8, pp.507-510. ISSN 1130-0108.

We report a case of intestinal mucormycosis in a 46-year-old male diagnosed with classical Hodgkin's disease, IV-B stage. During the first phase of chemotherapy he had a massive digestive bleeding event secondary to a jejunal ulcer, and zygomicosis mucor-type was diagnosed by endoscopic biopsy. The patient was treated with antifungal drugs and surgical resection of the intestine involved. At surgery a double covered perforation of the jejunum was seen. Pathological examination confirmed the previous diagnosis. After one year of follow-up the patient is doing well, and his lymphoma is on remission. To our best knowledge this is the second case of intestinal mucormycosis in a patient with Hodgkin's lymphoma reported in the medical literature.

Keywords : Intestinal mucormycosis; Hodgkin's disease; Lymphoma; Intestinal ulcer.
