Bronchopulmonary Allergic Aspergillosis; Endocarditis;

Invasive Aspergillosis; Madura Foot; Mycetoma;

Pulmonary Mycetoma (all variant items); Aspergillosis is a term used to describe a group of pulmonary infections caused by inhaling the fungus Aspergillus; Most people who are exposed to this common fungus are not affected by it, but those with an impaired immune system, or an abnormal immune response, may become ill; Three different infections may be caused by Aspergillus: allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis, pulmonary mycetoma (aspergilloma) or invasive aspergillosis---------[NORD 2005]---------
