Talaromyces marneffei, earlier called Penicillium marneffei, is a fungus which causes infection mostly in immunocompromised patients. Here, we report a case of T. marneffei causing chronic skin infection in a farmer who has no history of immune deficiency. Antifungal treatment was started, but the patient expired due to complications of deep vein thrombosis.
