Mucormycosis is a life-threatening invasive fungal infection, most commonly described in severely immunocompromised patients. It is characterized by rapid invasive growth of the fungus and often with fatal outcome. We report a case of a renal transplant recipient diagnosed with a donor-derived invasive mucormycosis. In this patient, we used a step-wise approach of withdrawal of immunosuppressants, antifungal induction therapy, extensive surgical debridement of all (potentially) infected tissue, abdominal irrigation of liposomal amphotericin B and interferon gamma. Due to rapid diagnosis and intensive therapy the patient survived.
