ICD-11 1F26 — Conidiobolomycosis
Conidobolomycosis is a subcutaneous infection involving nasal mucosa and paranasal sinuses, leading to formation of firm, subcutaneous nodules or polyps. The infection may be acquired via inhalation of spores or a minor trauma such as an insect bite. The infected host is frequently an otherwise healthy individual working outdoors in tropical areas. Conidiobolomycosis can, however, cause major facial disfigurement. In individuals with impaired immune responses more invasive and potentially fatal infections may occur: such infections are not usually associated with skin lesions.
