Allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis-like syndrome consequent to aspergilloma

Am Rev Respir Dis. 1979 May;119(5):811-20. doi: 10.1164/arrd.1979.119.5.811.


Two patients who represent the first well-documented cases of an allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis-like syndrome developing consequent to an aspergilloma are reported. These patients experienced both subjective and objective evidence of improvement after the initiation of corticosteroid therapy. Literature relevant to the combined occurrence of aspergilloma and allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis and their immunology is reviewed.
