Semiinvasive pulmonary aspergillosis: CT and pathologic findings in six patients

AJR Am J Roentgenol. 2000 Mar;174(3):795-8. doi: 10.2214/ajr.174.3.1740795.


Objective: We describe the chest CT and pathologic findings of semiinvasive pulmonary aspergillosis in six patients.

Conclusion: Semiinvasive pulmonary aspergillosis should be considered in the mildly immunocompromised patient with CT findings that reveal persistent parenchymal abnormalities. Patterns include consolidation and mass.
