Pancoast's syndrome associated with invasive aspergillosis

Pancoast's syndrome associated with invasive aspergillosis

Thorax 41(2): 156-157

A case in a 34-yr-old woman receiving induction chemotherapy for acute myeloid leukaemia is reported. Increasingly severe pain of the left scapula, which radiated along the medial aspect of the left upper arm, developed. A chest radiograph showed an opacity at the left apex. Histological examination of a biopsy specimen revealed numerous fungal hyphae identified as Aspergillus sp. Treatment with intravenous amphotericin B was started and after 1 week of treatment she was afebrile.
