Aspergilloma in old tuberculous cavity

The cavity provides a good environment for fungal colonization resulting in the formation of a mycetoma. Intracavitary mycetomas are most often due to colonization by Aspergillus but other fungi may produce similar lesions. Note the presence of a bronchus that communicates with the cavity (see NOTE).
