Abstract

Hyperimmunoglobulin E (Job's) syndrome, is a complex immune disorder characterized by complications involving pulmonary and cutaneous infections. An 11-year-old girl presented with a pneumatocele superinfected by aspergillosis and occupying almost the entire right lower lobe. Lobectomy was performed with the aid of videothoracoscopic instruments, and 9 months later the patient is doing well.
