Extract

Allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis (ABPA) was first reported by Hinson et al1 in 1952. Major work on ABPA was done by Pepys et al2 and McCarthy and Pepys.3 The first case of ABPA in the United States was reported in 1968.4 The patient, age 26 at the time of diagnosis, is now 57 years old and has had no progression of lung disease.5 The Northwestern Allergy-Immunology (NUAI) series of ABPA patients served as the basis for the definition of clinical and serologic analyses and has been reported previously,5 and a summary of our findings is shown in Table 1 .
