Systemic deep mycoses of the head and neck can be a difficult diagnostic problem. They may present with a picture clinically indistinguishable from carcinoma. The otolaryngologist must, therefore, keep these in mind in his differential diagnosis of masses, granulomas, and ulcerative lesions.
Three cases of deep fungal infections are discussed. A brief consideration of the various types, along with methods of diagnosis and treatment, is included. Amphotericin B, the primary agent used in treatment, is also described.
