She had a history of mild asthma for which she occasionally took salbutamol inhaler puffs. The patient underwent a pneumonectomy because of the severity of her disease process, and uncertainty about the diagnosis, prior to serology results being obtained.Serology showed an IgE of 2600, with a strongly positive Aspergillus RAST test and weakly positive Aspergillus precipitins. Material removed at bronchoscopy showed eosinophilia. These features confirm a diagnosis of allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis (ABPA).

Bronchiectasis C Bronchiectasis white cell scan (right) - left shows a normal scan for comparison

White cell scan (C) This pair of white cell scans from different people show almost no white cells in the lungs on the left, as in a healthy person (the spleen is the ‘hottest area). The scan on the right shows grossly increased update, especially in the left lung (seen on the right). This is the typical feature of severe bronchiectasis with large amounts of neutrophils and other phagocytes present.
