Featured Cases: Allergic Bronchopulmonary Aspergillosis (ABPA)

Volume 2, Issue 4.

In this edition Dr. Richard Moss will help expand our understanding of allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis (ABPA) with the discussion some typical case scenarios. ABPA is a major pulmonary complication in patients with cystic fibrosis (CF). The impact of ABPA on the course of CF lung disease poses special challenges, with chronic Aspergillus respiratory infection, even in the absence of ABPA, playing a significant role, according to data from 2 recent retrospective cohort studies. Dr. Moss’ use of current diagnostic criteria provides perspective also on the limitations.
