The authors conducted a clinical observation of 13 cases of pulmonary aspergilloma at Yeungnam University Hospital from March 1983 to March 1992, and the following results were observed: 1) The male to female ratio was 1 : 1.2, and the age distribution was ranged 30 to 67 years old. 2) All cases were symptomatic : hemoptysis, cough, sputum and dyspnea. Especially, hemoptysis was the presenting compliant in 10 patients (77%) 3) The underlying lung disease were pulmonary tuberculosis in 9, COPD in 5 and bronchiectasis in 2. 3 cases were without underlying disease. 4) According to radiographic appearance, 8 cases had the typical crescent sign and 5 cases were seen nodular lesion. And the lesions of 11 cases were located in both upper lung. 5) 10 cases were treated with surgical resection. Among these cases, 8 cases were alieved and 2 cases, died. And other 3 cases were treated with conservative treatment. We suggest that these findings would be helpful for the diagnosis and treatment of pulmonary aspergilloma and further study might be needed to evaluate the prognosis of pulmonary aspergilloma.
