Abstract

Opportunistic infections caused by fungi and unusual bacteria are predominantly encountered in the setting of immunosuppressed host. Co-infections with multiple such organisms can pose multiple challenges even to the astute clinician from establishing the diagnosis to drug interactions during treatment of such infections. We hereby present one such case of a triple opportunistic infection in an immunocompetent host and the difficulties faced in the therapeutic decision making.
