Opportunistic fungal infections are common in human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infected patients and commonly occur at some point during their illness. Though estimates show that these infections can occur in HIV patients with the same frequency as in the control group, their presentations are more severe and variable in HIV/acquired immunodeficiency syndrome. We present an HIV infected case with multiple fungal infections. This patient had onychomycosis due to Aspergillus niger, tinea cruris caused by Trichophyton rubrum, oral thrush and balanoposthitis due to Candida albicans.
