(4), patients with asthmatic symptoms are often accompanied with bronchopulmonary aspergillosis
; however, the underlying cause of non-asthmatic cases is often unknown.
Interestingly, the use of systemic corticosteroids was justified by the diagnosis of allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis
(ABPA) in 9 cases (64.3%).
According to the high titer of total IgE and eosinophilia, follow-up works were carried out for allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis
(ABPA), which was negative for specific IgG (18.5mg/ml, cut-off<50) and specific IgE (<0.1IU/ml, cut-off<0/1) of aspergillosis and specific IgG (4.2, ref<113) of Candida but positive for specific IgE (0.74, cut-off <0.1) of Candida.

Differential diagnosis is from cystic fibrosis (an inherited disorder), allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis
, a fungal infection and alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency, an inherited disease seen in white population.2
The topics include applying diagnostic markers to invasive aspergillosis in children, the impact of azole resistance on aspergillosis guidelines, invasive aspergillosis in the intensive care unit, using biological agents to treat fungal asthma and allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis
, and immune regulation in idiopathic bronchiectasis.
Of these resistant isolates, 3 were from patients with chronic pulmonary aspergillosis and 1 was from a patient with allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis
Accuracy of CT in the diagnosis of allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis
in asthmatic patients.
Based on the extensive workup, a diagnosis of allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis
(ABPA) was made.
It has generally been accepted that pulmonary aspergillosis can be divided into invasive pulmonary aspergillosis (IPA), chronic pulmonary aspergillosis (CPA), simple pulmonary aspergilloma (SPA), and allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis
(1) The infection may manifest with clinically and radiologically distinct patterns including saprophytic aspergillosis (aspergilloma), allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis
, semi-invasive aspergillosis, airway invasive aspergillosis and angioinvasive aspergillosis.
has been associated with several diseases such as rhinosinusitis, chronic cavitary pulmonary aspergillosis, aspergilloma, allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis
, and skin and wound infections, among others.
niger are known to cause invasive disease in humans.1 Four distinct clinical syndromes of the lung are described; allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis
, aspergilloma, chronic necrotizing aspergillosis, and invasive pulmonary aspergillosis.
