Definition

Infections with fungi of the genus ASPERGILLUS; Aspergillosis; Pulmonary Aspergillosis; Disorder Subdivisions: Aspergilloma; Bronchopulmonary Allergic Aspergillosis Endocarditis; Invasive Aspergillosis;

Madu"ra Foot; Mycetoma; Pulmonary Mycetoma; 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]----------
