Allergic bronchopulmonary candidiasis.

Abstract

A patient had an illness consistent with allergic bronchopulmonary candidiasis. She had asthma, fleeting pulmonary infiltrate, immediate skin reactivity and precipitating antibody against Candida albicans, elevated total serum IgE concentration, elevated IgE and IgG antibody activity against C albicans, and two positive sputum cultures for C albicans. Serial serologic studies showed a significant decrease of serum IgE levels and IgE antibody activity after corticosteroid treatment.
