Three cases of aspergillosis observed in Pavia Infectious Disease Clinic in 1983-85 are described. The cases differed both in the site of the infection (lungs, bones and liver) and in the patients' basic immunological situation. The importance of mycological investigations during diagnosis is emphasised, though they should of course be flanked by instrumental examinations and blood chemical assays. The efficacy of specific treatment with amphotericin B combined with surgery and plasma exchange is also emphasised.
