We report the case of a patient with different skin lesions following concomitant or sequential Talaromyces marneffei infection and other opportunistic infections associated with neutralizing antiinterferon (IFN)-γ autoantibodies. This type of infection should be considered in the differential diagnosis of patients who are HIV negative and infected with T marneffei.
A woman in her 40s presented with a 9-month history of intermittent fever, fatigue, cough, thoracodynia, and multiple skin nodules and abscesses. She resided in a rural area village in Guangxi, in southern China. Her medical history and family history were unremarkable.
