Abstract

About the two first cases of rhinoentomophthoromycosis (Conidiobolus coronatus) observed in Congo, the spectacular efficiency of ketoconazole must be pointed out: the second patient who has been treated from the beginning, recovered in two months. This evolution is to be compared with the therapeutic difficulties which had occurred before this antimycotic drug was used, as illustrated by the first patient who had to be hospitalized for almost one year and half and to suffer twice from an upper lip necrosis. However, that patient regained a decent facies due to a treatment with ketoconazole which had been postponed for a long time, and added to an hepatitis, and to plastic surgery.
