Abstract:A 54-year old woman, intensively treated for aggressive, relapsed lymphoma had symptoms of severe dyspnea and hoarseness. The diagnosis of endotracheal aspergilloma was made by sputum culture, bronchoscopy and biopsy. The lesions consisted of endotracheal aspergilloma associated with tra-cheal obstruction due to the mass effect. The patient improved dramatically after removal of the mass.
