INTRODUCTION: Aspergillus pulmonary infection occurs in patients with underlying chronic lung disease with presentations ranging from mycetoma, to chronic cavitary pulmonary aspergillosis, CNPA, or invasive pulmonary aspergillosis (IPA). IPA is highly lethal and occurs in immunocompromised patients. CNPA is usually seen in patients with some degree of immunosuppression and is often referred to as a “subacute” or “semi-invasive” form of IPA. We describe a case of life threatening hemoptysis due to CNPA in an immunocompetent patient.
