ABSTRACT
Invasive aspergillus tracheobronchitis is a rare infections complication in severely immunocompromised patients who are generally neutropenic with haematological diseases, AIDS or after solid organ transplantation. However a few cases have been reported with no apparent severe compromise in the host defences. Aspergillus tracheobronchitis varies from localized tracheobronchitis discovered incidentally at necropsy to more or less extensive bronchial obstruction contributing to respiratory failure.
