Abstract

Allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis (ABPA) is challenging to diagnose because the symptoms resemble those seen in many pulmonary diseases. The authors describe a 28-year-old man with ABPA, who presented with pulmonary nodules, shortness of breath, hemoptysis, eosinophilia, high IgE levels, and a history of asthma.
