What is aspergillosis?

Aspergillosis is an infection caused by a type of fungus. It typically affects the respiratory system and sinuses, but its signs and severity vary greatly. Aspergillus is present everywhere (indoors and outdoors), which can cause the infection.

  • Blood in saliva

  • Noisy breathing; e.g. wheezing, rattling

  • History of connective tissue, autoimmune or rheumatic disease

  • Fever

  • Waking up at night with difficulty in breathing

  • On medications that suppresses the immune system

Questions your doctor may ask to check for aspergillosis

  • Do you have yellow or green sputum?

  • Is there blood in your phlegm?
