INTRODUCTION: Aspergillosis is a mycotic disease caused by aspergillus species, most commonly A. fumigatus. The manifestations of pulmonary aspergillosis depend on the patient’s immune status and underlying lung disease. Pulmonary involvement can be classified as pulmonary aspergilloma, allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis (ABPA), chronic necrotizing pulmonary aspergillosis and invasive apergillosis. An endobronchial aspergilloma, as presented below, is unusual and is characterized by growth of aspergillus in the bronchial lumen.
