PMID:  1759926     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Invasive aspergillosis (IA) is a rare infection in patients with the Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS). We report the first Australian cases of histologically and microbiologically proven IA diagnosed antemortem in AIDS patients. We also describe the first case of laryngeal involvement and the unusual case of a pneumothorax due to IA. These three cases illustrate the varied clinical and pathological features of IA in AIDS and highlight some of the difficulties in diagnosis and treatment. The infections occurred in the setting of advanced immunodeficiency and multiple opportunistic infections and responded poorly to treatment.
