Abstract

Aspergilloma and invasive aspergillosis have been reported in HIV-infected individuals. Allergic Bronchopulmonary Aspergillosis (ABPA) is a lung disease marked by a hypersensitivity response to inhaled aspergillus species, most commonly Aspergillus fumigatus (Af). This manifestation of Af has previously not been reported in HIV-infected individuals. We report a case of an HIV-infected individual with ABPA who presents with a subacute respiratory illness and new pulmonary infiltrates.
