A 35 year old HIV positive patient from Hong Kong presented with a fever, cough and a skin rash in association with a lung mass, all of which were due to disseminated Penicillium marneffei infection. He made a good response to antifungal therapy. The lung mass is a previously undescribed pulmonary manifestation of disseminated Penicillium marneffei infection. Infections with this fungus should be suspected in any patient with HIV and respiratory symptoms who has visited southeast Asia.
