Abstract

Infections by Aspergillus species present a particular challenge. The organism, which is ubiquitous in the environment, causes allergic disease in otherwise healthy individuals and devastating disease in the immunosuppressed. This article examines the range of infections caused by Aspergillus species, the challenges of diagnosis, and current treatment options.
