Welcome to, the official site of the ECMM/ISHAM Working Group on Zygomycosis. The Working Group (WG) was initially formed under the auspices of ECMM, in 2004. The aims of the WG were to form a European registry, collecting cases of mucormycosis from various European countries. During the period 2005-2007, 230 cases were submitted from 13 countries. The results were published in 2011 (Skiada A, Pagano L, Groll A, et al. Zygomycosis in Europe: Analysis of 230 cases accrued by the registry of the European Confederation of Medical Mycology Working Group on Zygomycosis between 2005 and 2007. Clin Microb Infect. 2011). From 2008 onwards the WG expanded and it now includes participants from all around the world. It is now an ECMM/ISHAM WG.

Our aims are multiple: To continue collecting cases in our registry (you can download the protocol), to provide information about various aspects of this rare disease and to enhance the collaboration of physicians and researchers from all over the world. In addition, any physician can submit a question regarding mucormycosis and an expert will give an answer.

Join our group! Everybody is welcome!
