In completing research I also found a signifcance with IV drug use and mucor infections.
Cerebral mucormycosis is extremely rare but when it is
diagnosed, it is often found in IV drug users (Fungal Infections, 2018). In a study published in Neurology, mucromycosis was associated with IV drug uses, most common heroin and cocaine (Lin, 2013). Although the infection started in another
location, mucor had a predilection for the basal ganglia in 89% of those who were studied (Lin, 2013). NURS Cerebral mucormycosis Discussion Papers.
