Abstract : Allergic bronchopulmonary mycosis (ABPM) is a hypersensitivity-mediated disease that affects patients all over the world. Cladosporium has recently begun to be recognized as one of the many causes of ABPM, however documented reactions in humans are still limited to two case reports only. We describe a case of ABPM caused by Cladosporium with classic features on presentation and confirmation with cultures obtained from bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL).
