This paper concerns the morphology of 3 types of bronchopulmonary aspergillosis: saprophytic aspergillosis (SPA), invasive aspergillosis (IVA) and allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis (ABPA)/allergic bronchopulmonary mycosis (ABPM). To know whether Aspergillus (ASP) in SPA only colonizes in preexisting cavities or presents significant pathogenecity, we examined 38 surgical specimens of SPA and 10 post-tuberculous open cavities (PT-OC). Macroscopically, SPA cavities had macroscopic ulcers (81… CONTINUE READING
