The aim of treatment is to suppress the immune reaction to the fungus and to control bronchospasm.. The immune reaction is suppressed using oral corticosteroids: high dose of prednisolone or prednisone (30 to 45 mg per day) in acute attacks, a lower maintenance dose (5–10 mg per day)
In medicine, allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis is a form characterised by an exaggerated response of the immune system to the fungus Aspergillus . It occurs most often in patients with asthma or cystic fibrosis. Aspergillus spores are ubiquitous in soil and are normally found in the sputum of healthy individuals. A. fumigatus is responsible for a spectrum of lung diseases called as aspergilloses.
