What is Aspergillosis?
(Symptoms, Causes & Treatment)
According to the Centers for Disease Control, Aspergillosis is an infection which is caused by Aspergillus, a common mold or fungus that lives indoors and outdoors. Most people breathe in Aspergillus spores every day without getting sick. However, people with weakened immune systems or lung diseases are at a higher risk of developing health problems due to Aspergillus. The majority of cases occur in people with underlying illnesses such as tuberculosis or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), but with otherwise healthy immune systems. The types of health problems caused by Aspergillus include allergic reactions, lung infections, and infections in other organs.
Symptoms can vary depending on the type of aspergillosis.
