The HIV is not an only thereat but due to associated opportunistic pathogens the major cause of morbidity and mortality is occurring in such patients. Twenty five positive symptomatic patients who are coming to ART centre of Thuraiyur region, Government Hospital of Trichy were included in the present study for finding the profile of opportunistic bacterial and fungal pathogens. Hundred biosamples were collected from 25 clinically symptomatic HIV+ patients during the month of June - December, 2014.Blood serum, sputum, oral swabs and urine samples were collected with taking all aseptic precautions. A total of 73 isolates were identified from 25 HIV infected patients. Among them, seventeen types of bacterial and four types of fungal species were identified. The predominant bacteria isolated in the study were Escherichia coli RV412 and Klebsiella pnemoniae, Escherichia coli DH5 alpha, Enterobacter cloacae MB, Klebsiella pneumonia DSM and Staphylococcus haemolyticus CHB. Similarly in fungal species the most predominant fungus is Candida tropicalis followed by Candida glabrata
