Navigating Aspergilloma Management

Aspergilloma Treatment Delhi - Surgical Solutions and Beyond

Aspergilloma is a condition where fungus balls made up of a fungus called Aspergillus fumigatus form in the lungs. 

These fungal balls are non-invasive and usually occur in people with normal immune systems but structurally abnormal lungs, which have pre-existing cavities. Cavities in the lungs can be caused by various conditions like tuberculosis, sarcoidosis, bronchiectasis, bronchogenic cysts, or air-filled cavities caused by infections like pneumocystis or even Covid infections.

Most of the time, Aspergillomas don’t cause any symptoms. However, in some cases, patients may experience coughing up blood due to the formation of new blood vessels and inflammation around the fungus balls. This is called hemoptysis and can range from minor streaks of bleeding to life-threatening amounts. The main danger is that a large amount of blood can flood both lungs, preventing oxygenation and causing a situation similar to drowning.

Unraveling Aspergilloma

Understanding Aspergilloma Emergence in the Lungs

Aspergillomas are commonly found in the upper lobes of the lungs, especially after a history of lung tuberculosis, even if it has been successfully treated. 

Aspergillomas can rarely occur in the lower lobes as well. On a plain chest X-ray, an Aspergilloma can be seen as a mass within a cavity. The mass is usually round or oval, and the air around it takes on a crescent shape. By changing the patient’s position, the mobility of the mass can be demonstrated.

A CT scan provides a better view of the rounded mass within the cavity and also shows the air crescent sign around the mass. It can also demonstrate the mobility of the mass when the patient is positioned differently, such as lying down or standing up.

Symptoms Of Aspergilloma

Persistant Cough with Blood

This happens because the fungus can irritate the surrounding areas, causing some bleeding.

Shortness of Breath

If you find yourself getting out of breath more easily than usual, especially during simple activities like walking or climbing stairs,

Chest Pain or Discomfort

This happens because the fungal mass and the inflammation around it can affect the nerves in that area.
