      Abstract

      A 24 year old asthmatic woman with mixed allergic bronchopulmonary fungal disease due to Pseudallescheria boydii and Aspergillus is reported. No previous cases due to P boydii have been described. This patient provides evidence that fungi other than Aspergillus species may cause the condition.
