Presentation of Aspergillus infections of the lung is varied. Allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis (ABPA) is one such presentation in which there is hypersensitivity reaction to Aspergillus antigens. It occurs commonly in asthmatics and patients with cystic fibrosis. We report a case of ABPA in a 55-year-old male initially evaluated for left lung cancer who had never been diagnosed with asthma.
