Abstract

This is the first article of a familial occurrence of allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis in a father and daughter. Serologic studies revealed serum precipitins and elevated IgG or IgE antibody activity against certain Aspergillus species. Investigation of the home revealed an environmental source of exposure. Another family member demonstrated serum precipitins and an IgG antibody response to the isolated Aspergillus species without evidence of allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis.
