Summary

Pulmonary aspergilloma developed in a post-tuberculosis cavity was visualized and biopsied by flexible bronchoscopy in a 53-year-old man. The patient was treated with oral itraconazole (200 mg daily) without significant side effects. After 10 months of therapy, repeat flexible bronchoscopy confirmed complete resolution of the aspergilloma.
