Pneumocystis jirovecii pneumonia (PCP) is an opportunistic fungal infection in respiratory system caused by fungal organisms that cause pneumonia. The incidence of PCP is relatively low. Appropriate investigations are needed to establish diagnostics for suspected PCP infection in HIV / AIDS patients. Detection of PCP cases should be done as early as possible, so that prophylaxis and PCP treatment are not delayed and can reduce mortality.
