We report the case of an 11-year-old girl with an aortobronchial fistula as a complication from an invasive aspergillosis in the lung. This very rare problem has not been reported in children, to our knowledge. Management of Aspergillus infections of the lung in children and aortobronchial fistulas is reviewed.
