INTRODUCTION: Allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis (ABPA) and pulmonary mycobacterium avium complex (MAC) infection, while not mutually exclusive, have not previously been described as synergistic pulmonary processes resulting in mortality. ABPA can cause significant, irreversible lung destruction, but is mostly seen in conjunction with asthma or cystic fibrosis (CF). We present a fatal case of ABPA in a patient with chronic severe bullous emphysema, but no history of ABPA or pulmonary Aspergillosis who developed ABPA after completing a 1 year treatment for pulmonary MAC.
