Characteristics of Chronic Pulmonary Aspergillosis: Review of Cases


Chronic pulmonary aspergillosis (CPA) affects individuals with preexisting lung cavities. Diagnosis is established with the evaluation of respiratory signs and symptoms, radiographic characteristics and the results of mycological examinations. The clinical forms of APC can be considered as a continuous spectrum of manifestations that depend on the individual’s immune status. In APC a distinction should be made between acute and subacute invasive pulmonary aspergillosis at one end of the spectrum, and simple Aspergilloma at the opposite.
