Journal of Bronchology: October 1995 - Volume 2 - Issue 4 - p 308-311 Free Abstract We report a rare case of Aspergillus tracheobronchitis with aspergilloma. The ball valve obstruction of the right main bronchus was partially removed via a wire claw forceps inserted through the fiberoptic bronchoscope. Subsequent improvement was noted in the patient's chest radiograph and hypoxia. Awareness of this rare presentation of Aspergillus infection may lead to early diagnosis and prompt treatment. © Williams & Wilkins 1995. All Rights Reserved.
