Entry
H02393                      Disease                                

Name
Talaromycosis;
Penicilliosis
Description
Talaromycosis (penicilliosis) is a life-threatening mycosis caused by the dimorphic fungus Talaromyces marneffei, which was first isolated from a bamboo rat in Vietnam in 1956. It affects primarily immunocompromised residents and travellers in southeast Asia, southern China, and northeastern India. It is a major cause of death in patients with advanced HIV infection in these areas. Infections probably occur through inhalation of T. marneffei conidia.
