Allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis is a slowly progressive disease, caused by the fungus Aspergillus fumigatus hypersensitivity when it is found in the airway. It usually affects asthmatics and patients with cystic fibrosis. We report the case of a year-old male patient, student, farmer and rancher with chronic respiratory disease.

Allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis
This entity is most commonly encountered in patients with longstanding asthma , and only occasionally in patients with cystic fibrosis 4,5. Only rarely does it appear in patients with no other identifiable pulmonary illness 5. Clinically, patients have atopic symptoms especially asthma and present with recurrent chest infection. They may expectorate orange-colored mucous plugs. Allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis is the result of hypersensitivity towards Aspergillus spp which grows within the lumen of the bronchi, without invasion. The hypersensitivity initially causes bronchospasm and bronchial wall edema, which is IgE-mediated. Both type I and III allergic reactions have been implicated 4.

Allergic Bronchopulmonary Aspergillosis (ABP)
Allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis is a slowly progressive disease, caused by the fungus Aspergillus fumigatus hypersensitivity when it is found in the airway. It usually affects asthmatics and patients with cystic fibrosis. We report the case of a year-old male patient, student, farmer and rancher with chronic respiratory disease. The diagnosis of allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis was made on the basis of the clinical symptoms and complementary studies.
