Pleural effusion in allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis: two case reports

Br J Dis Chest. 1981 Jan;75(1):91-5. doi: 10.1016/s0007-0971(81)80013-7.


Two cases of pleural effusion associated with allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis are described. This association has not previously been reported. In one case the effusion cleared with prednisolone. It is suggested that the effusions were directly related to the aspergillosis.
