Penicillium roqueforti is a fungus that widely exists in the environment and is often non-pathogenic to humans. However, in immunocompromised hosts, it may be recognized as a cause of systemic mycosis. We report a rare case of mycosis due to Penicillium roqueforti in six-year-old haemato-oncology patient.
