HIV and tuberculosis co-infection is very common in Sub-Saharan Africa. On the other hand, when I opened the first clinic for HIV in Saigon (or Ho Chi Minh City), we had a lot of interesting illnesses that we don't encounter here in the United States like penicilliosis, which is a fungal infection that behaves like histoplasmosis - a fungus we do have here in the United States and can co-infect people with HIV - particularly in the Midwest.
