BACKGROUND: Broadly, there are three main categories in pulmonary aspergillosis: chronic forms of aspergillosis; allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis; and invasive aspergillosis (IPA). IPA has been further subdivided into angioinvasive and airway-invasive aspergillosis. Aspergillus overlap syndromes is defined as the occurrence of more than one form aspergillus disease in a single individual. OBJECTIVES: To help clinicians correctly deal with AOS. METHODS: Retrospectively study the clinical findings of nine patients presenting with AOS...

OBJECTIVE: The F508del mutation occurs in approximately 3.5% of Caucasian population of Northern Europe. Heterozygotes have increased risk for asthma and reduced pulmonary function. Allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis (ABPA) is more common in patients with cystic fibrosis (CF). We aimed to establish the frequency of F508del mutation in adult patients with ABPA. METHODS: A retrospective matched case-control study of CF genotyped patients with ABPA seen at the National Aspergillosis Centre was undertaken...

Chronic necrotizing pulmonary aspergillosis (CNPA) is a condition caused by the ubiquitous fungus Aspergillus fumigatus in non-immunocompromised individuals. Numerous underlying conditions have been associated with CNPA. Tuberculosis, non-tuberculous mycobacterial infection and allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis (ABPA) remain the predominant risk factors for development of CNPA. Development of CNPA in echinococcal cyst cavities is very rare and the optimal therapeutic regimen and treatment duration have not been established...

Fungi of the genus Aspergillus are ubiquitously present. Even though humans inhale Aspergillus spores daily under natural conditions, Aspergillus-associated pulmonary diseases only occur under special circumstances. Whether an Aspergillus-associated disease develops and which type of Aspergillus-associated disease develops depends on the constitution of the host. The spectrum of Aspergillus-associated pulmonary diseases ranges from allergic diseases, such as hypersensitivity pneumonitis to allergic infectious diseases, such as allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis (ABPA) and bronchocentric granulomatosis (BG) to infectious diseases, such as invasive (IA) or semi-invasive aspergillosis (SIA) and chronic pulmonary aspergillosis (CPA)...

BACKGROUND: Eosinophils mediate the immune response in different infectious conditions. The release of extracellular DNA traps (ETs) by leukocytes has been described as an innate immune response mechanism that is relevant in many disorders including fungal diseases. Different stimuli induce the release of human eosinophil ETs (EETs). Aspergillus fumigatus is an opportunistic fungus that may cause eosinophilic allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis (ABPA). It has been reported that eosinophils are important to the clearance of A fumigatus in infected mice lungs...

AIM: To estimate the frequency of fungal sensitization and the incidence of allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis (ABPA) in asthmatic patients. SUBJECTS AND METHODS: A total of 140 asthmatic patients were examined. They underwent allergologic (skin tests for fungal allergens, estimation of total and fungal allergen-specific IgE levels) and mycological (microscopy and inoculation of respiratory biosubstrates) examinations. Chest computed tomography, when indicated, was done...

Aspergillus empyema is usually reported as a complication of surgical procedures, and spontaneous cases are quite rare. Here, we describe the case of a 16-year-old man who suddenly developed dyspnea despite previously being healthy. Chest computed tomography showed multiple mass-containing cavity lesions, pneumothorax, and pleural effusion in the left thorax. Within 2 weeks, Aspergillus fumigatus grew from his pleural effusion, thus he was diagnosed with Aspergillus empyema. He also developed severe eosinophilia after admission, and was treated with anti-fungal drugs...

Aspergillus fumigatus remains the most common species in all pulmonary syndromes, followed by Aspergillus flavus which is a common cause of allergic rhinosinusitis, postoperative aspergillosis and fungal keratitis. The manifestations of Aspergillus infections include invasive aspergillosis, chronic pulmonary aspergillosis and bronchitis. Allergic manifestations of inhaled Aspergillus include allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis and severe asthma with fungal sensitization. Triazoles are the mainstay of therapy against Aspergillus infections for treatment and prophylaxis...

Molecular-based allergy diagnosis yields multiple biomarker datasets. The classical diagnostic score for allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis (ABPA), a severe disease usually occurring in asthmatic patients and people with cystic fibrosis, comprises succinct immunological criteria formulated in 1977: total IgE, anti-Aspergillus fumigatus (Af) IgE, anti-Af "precipitins," and anti-Af IgG. Progress achieved over the last four decades led to multiple IgE and IgG(4) Af biomarkers available with quantitative, standardized, molecular-level reports...

Invasive pulmonary mycosis is after allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis (ABPA) a frequent and severe complication of CF lung disease. Among CF caregivers, there is an insecurity when and how to treat infections of the lung parenchyma caused by different fungi in patients with CF. This case series provides a multicenter experience on diagnostic, manifestation, and treatment of non-ABPA cases of pulmonary. Non-ABPA cases of pulmonary mycoses in patients with CF have been collected from the CF Centers in Berlin, Essen, Worms, Frankfurt (Germany), Leeds (UK), and Barcelona (Spain)...

Aspergillus spp are ubiquitous in the environment, and inhalation of Aspergillus spores is unavoidable. An intact immune system, with normal airway function, protects most people from disease. Globally, however, the toll from aspergillosis is high. The literature has largely focused on invasive aspergillosis, yet the burden in terms of chronicity and prevalence is higher for noninvasive Aspergillus conditions. This article discusses allergic aspergilloses and provides an update on the diagnosis and management of allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis, including in patients with cystic fibrosis, and an update on severe asthma with fungal sensitization...

INTRODUCTION: We studied the relationship between GORD and allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis (ABPA), chronic pulmonary aspergillosis (CPA), or Aspergillus bronchitis. BACKGROUND: Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GORD) is well known to initiate or exacerbate pulmonary inflammatory conditions, inducing bronchial asthma and chronic obstructive lung disease. METHODS: We reviewed four patients referred with elevated Aspergillus serology markers and marked pulmonary symptoms for ABPA, CPA, and Aspergillus bronchitis, and discussed the underlying pathophysiological relationship with GORD...

Aspergillus is described as mould characterised by septate hyphae about 2-4μ in diameter, it is ubiquitous in nature and spreads by inhalation of spores. It causes opportunistic infections in almost six forms namely Allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis, Aspergillus sinusitis, Cutaneous aspergillosis, Aspergilloma, Chronic pulmonary aspergillosis, Invasive aspergillosis. Invasive aspergillosis of mediastinum in an immunocompetent patient has rarely been reported. We present a case of a young male who had presented with chest pain, cough and breathleness was later diagnosed as fulminant mediastinal aspergillosis...

Objective To summarize the clinical features of allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis(ABPA)to facilitate its early diagnosis and treatment. Methods We retrospectively analyzed the clinical data of 77 patients who had been admitted to Peking Union Medical College Hospital from January 1996 to July 2015 with ABPA. Results The average age of these 77 patients(38 men and 39 women)was(41.8±18.3)years. The co-morbidities included bronchial asthma(n=74,96%)and pulmonary cystic fibrosis(n=3,4%). The main symptoms and signs of ABPA were chronic cough(100%),sputum production(97%),wheeze(86%),sputum plugs(25%),blood-stained sputum(18%),hemoptysis(9%),chest pain(9%),fever(47%),weight loss(30%),and night sweat(12%)...
