Department of Infectious Diseases, University of Turin, Amedeo di Savoia Hospital, Italy.


The clinical features of a tracheobronchial infection due to Aspergillus flavus in an AIDS patient with a normal neutrophil count is described. Diagnosis was made by culture and microscopic examination of biopsies obtained from bronchial vegetations seen at bronchoscopy. Radiographic examination of the neck revealed the presence of large endoluminal fungal masses. Initially the patient was treated with a combination of itraconazole, flucytosine and aerosolized amphotericin B, then only with itraconazole plus aerosolized amphotericin B. A good therapeutic response was observed.
