  • Talaromyces marneffei (formerly Penicillium marneffei) is a thermally dimorphic fungus.
  • It can cause a fatal disseminated disease, especially as an opportunistic mycosis in human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)- infected patients.
  • A high incidence of T. marneffei infection occurs in Southeast Asia, particularly Thailand, Northeastern India, Hong Kong, Southern China, Vietnam, Taiwan (Cooper and Vanittanakom, 2008), Malaysia (Nor-Hayati et al., 2012) and mainland China. [1]
