Deep mycoses and palatal perforation with granulomatous pansinusitis in acquired immunodeficiency syndrome: Case reports
Lucatorto / Eversole
Palatal perforation with granulomatous pansinusitis caused by deep mycotic infection is a rare complication of acquired immunodeficiency syndrome. Two cases of palatal uleration with osseous destruction, one caused by Histoplasma capsulatum the other by Cryptococcus neoformans, are discussed. Treatment with a palatal obturator restored function and speech in both patients during the remainder of their lives.
