BACKGROUND Allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis is a disease of asthmatic patients which may follow a protracted course and result in chronic lung damage such as central bronchiectasis. In asthma uncomplicated by allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis, in particular in asthmatic patients with immediate hypersensitivity type skin reactions to Aspergillus fumigatus, the incidence of bronchiectasis is uncertain. METHODS Computed tomographic (CT) scans were performed in 17 asthmatic patients… CONTINUE READING
