Abstract

Invasive pulmonary aspergillosis is a serious complication in immunocompromised patients. In those unresponsive to pharmacological treatment, or when drug toxicity is excessive, surgery may resolve the condition. A 48-year-old woman with invasive pulmonary aspergillosis after renal transplantation underwent resection of the right upper lobe and the apical segment of the inferior lobe, followed by complete recovery.
