Penicillium marneffei

Jan 4th – Penicillium species are usually regarded as unimportant in terms of causing human disease. Penicillium marneffei, discovered in 1956, is an exception. This is the only known thermally dimorphic species of Penicillium, and it can cause a lethal systemic infection(penicilliosis) with fever and anaemia similar to disseminated cryptococcosis. #365DaysOfMicroscopy
