Mucormycosis (Mold Infection)

tenguix

Balls deep in the dead.
A rare fungal infection with a generally poor prognosis -- often characterized by the growth of hyphae (branching filamentous structure of fungi) in and around the blood vessels. Most commonly occurs in the brain, sinuses, and lungs in immunocompromised individuals.
I had some trouble gathering high-res images from medical journals, but I did my best.

I'll start it off with a set of an immunocompromised young boy.
