A case of allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis detected on a high school medical checkup

A case of allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis detected on a high school medical checkup

Japanese Journal of Chest Diseases 50(2): 138-143

A 16-year old girl was admitted to our hospital with a slight fever, general fatigue and abnormal shadows on chest roentgenogram. She had had 11-year long history of bronchial asthma, without no attack for past two years. Typical central bronchiectasis was noted on bronchography. She showed a marked peripheral blood eosinophilia, an elevated serum IgE level (12,000 IU/ml), positive precipitating antibody against Aspergillus fumigatus and positive immediate and late skin reactions to Aspergillus fumigatus.
