It refers to pneumonitis on account of hyper-sensitivity to certain fungi, parasites etc. Allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis (ABPA) is one of the commonest cause of this disease. In a survey of incidence of pulmonary aspergillosis in 500 patients of various chest diseases, 18 (3.6%) cases of ABPA and 15 (3.0%) cases of probable ABPA were encountered. The basic pathology in majority of the cases was bronchial asthma and only one case each of pulmonary tuberculosis and chronic bronchitis suffered for diagnosis of the disease.
