BOSCO MENDOZA, Cedeño et al. Inusual presentación infecciosa oportunista en pulmón secuelar: reporte de un caso clínico. Rev. am. med. respir. [online]. 2015, vol.15, n.4, pp.355-358. ISSN 1852-236X.

Aspergilloma is considered the most common and best known cause of pulmonary aspergillosis, which arises by the fungal colonization of a lung cavity, a cyst or existing bullae resulting from chronic diseases such as tuberculosis, bronchiectasis, bullous emphysema, pulmonary fibrosis and sarcoidosis in advanced stages. The presentation of multiple aspergillomas is infrequent. A single fungal ball-like mass is the most common presentation.

Keywords : Apergilloma; Aspergillosis; Hemoptysis; Cavitary tuberculosis.
