Abstract

Conventionally, pulmonary aspergillosis is classified into three types, namely, invasive pulmonary aspergillosis, chronic and saprophytic pulmonary aspergillosis, and allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis. However, with the increase of knowledge about aspergillosis appreciated in the new editions of clinical guidelines, the clinical typing of pulmonary aspergillosis is increasingly improved [1].
