Abstract

Allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis is a slowly progressive disease, caused by the fungus Aspergillus fumigatus hypersensitivity when it is found in the airway. It usually affects asthmatics and patients with cystic fibrosis. We report the case of a 20-year-old male patient, student, farmer and rancher with chronic respiratory disease. The diagnosis of allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis was made on the basis of the clinical symptoms and complementary studies.

La aspergilosis broncopulmonar alérgica es una enfermedad de progresión lenta, producida por la hipersensibilidad al hongo Aspergillus fumigatus cuando invade la vía aérea. Por lo general afecta a pacientes asmáticos y con fibrosis quística. Comunicamos el caso de un paciente de 20 años de edad, estudiante, ganadero y agricultor, con un cuadro respiratorio crónico. Luego del análisis de sus síntomas y de estudios complementarios, llegamos al diagnóstico de aspergilosis broncopulmonar alérgica.
