A case of bronchopulmonary aspergillosis recurring in a residual tuberculous cavity

A case of bronchopulmonary aspergillosis recurring in a residual tuberculous cavity

Kekkaku 64(9): 579-584

A 52-year-old man, who had undergone right upper lobectomy because of active tuberculosis 29 years before, was admitted with complaints of severe cough and expectation. Two years ago, he had pulmonary aspergillosis and was successfully treated with some anti-mycotic agents. This time his chest X-P showed fungus ball in a residual tuberculous cavity in the right upper field and he was diagnosed as pulmonary aspergilloma from the results of radiological findings, sputum culture, and serologic test. By bronchofiberscopy fungus ball was observed. With transbronchial infusion of Amphotericin B, intravenous administration of Miconazole and oral administration of Flucytosine, clinical symptoms have improved and lysis of fungus ball was observed. Sputum culture revealed Aspergillus flavipes group. Bronchopulmonary aspergillosis, which was incurable by surgical treatment because of underlying disease, was successfully treated with transbronchial infusion of Amphotericin B and administration of some anti-mycotic agents.
