Description

Talaromyces marneffei-1.jpg
  • Talaromyces marneffei (or Penicillium marneffei) is an opportunistic pathogen that can cause disseminated disease in human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-infected patients, especially in Southeast Asia. T. marneffei is a thermally dimorphic fungus. Typically, T. marneffei has an adaptive morphology. It grows in a filamentous form (mould) at 25 °C and can differentiate to produce asexual spores (conidia). In contrast, at 37 °C, it grows as yeast cells that divide by fission [1].
