Pulmonary fungus ball is the mycotic form most commonly observed by surgeons. In such cases where surgery is judged appropriate on the basis of the patient's general condition, the operation is curative. Six personally observed cases of fungus ball treated in 1976-81 are reported. The symptoms, the most indicative being haemopthysis, and diagnostic surveys, primarily radiological, are described.
