Abstract

Penicilliosis marneffei  is a  fungal infection caused by Penicillum marneffei. It may present both as localized or systemic manifestation. However, localised infection is more commonly observed in immunocompromised patients. A hilar mass in human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) patient is usually considered tubercular or malignancy.  We report a HIV positive patient with hilar mass caused by Penicillum marneffei.
