Abstract

A staging system has been presented previously to assist in the evaluation and management of allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis (ABPA). One of these stages is a remission stage in which patients are free from pulmonary infiltrates. It had been uncertain whether patients with ABPA in remission were at risk for recurrences. We now present a patient in whom recurrence of ABPA developed after 7 yr of remission that demonstrates that patients with ABPA are at risk for recurrences for a prolonged period of time.
