Abstract

Although the importance of Aspergillus in AIDS is now increasing, extra-pulmonary disease is still an unusual event, especially when a single localization occurs. A case of isolated renal aspergilloma in an AIDS patient is described. At onset, no recognized risk factors were present in our patient. An early surgical approach combined with antifungal chemotherapy (amphotericin B, Itraconazole) led to a good control of the disease, with no evidence of recrudescence at 8 months' follow-up.
