A man with allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis had pneumothorax and bronchopleural fistula while impacted mucus was being successfully dislodged from bronchiectatic airways. We believe this is the first report of pneumothorax with bronchopleural fistula in a patient with active ABPA, and we have proposed a mechanism to explain the development of this complication.
