Iron overload and deferoxamine therapy have been associated with a higher risk of zygomycosis (248,253–257). Iron is an important virulence factor for Zygomycetes, and when deferoxamine binds to iron in the host, it serves as a siderophore for this mold. In a large series study, 65% of infections occurred in males. Underlying conditions included diabetes in 36%, no underlying condition in 19%, and malignancy in 17% (of which 95% were hematologic). The site of infection varied based on the population, but overall, the most frequent locations were rhinocerebral 48% (particularly in diabetics and intravenous drug users), lung 24% (neutropenic patients, SOT patients), skin 19% (penetrating wounds), gastrointestinal 7%, and disseminated infection 3% (burns, prematurity, diabetes) (248).

Brasiliensis remains undefined though the conditions of endemic regions include mild temperatures, many forests, high humidity with plenty of water, rainy summers, and short winters. The areas are also notable for tobacco and coffee farming (306).

The organism undergoes conversion to the yeast form in the lung parenchyma from where it can disseminate.

Africa is also considered an endemic region for blastomycosis (6).
