Penicilliosis is a rare opportunistic fungal infection caused by Talaromyces marneffei, especially in the HIV-infected patients. The untreated disease is highly fatal. The infection is endemic in Southeast Asia and Northeast India. The present case is the first case of disseminated penicilliosis from North India and Delhi in a 31-year-old male, recently diagnosed with HIV. This case highlights the importance of considering an unusual organism as the cause of disseminated disease in the nonendemic area.
