A lung transplant recipient was diagnosed with penicilliosis due to Talaromyces marneffei, a fungus endemic in South-East Asia, which was acquired by donor transmission. This first case of Talaromyces marneffei-transmission by transplantation underscores that current globalisation of travelling necessitates increased vigilance for transmission of unusual pathogens in organ recipients.
