Total IgE level traditionally has been used to monitor the clinical activity of allergic bronchopulmonary fungal disease.
Allergic bronchopulmonary fungal disease (see below) occurs in persons with asthma and is easily differentiated from chronic necrotizing pulmonary aspergillosis by the prominence of tissue eosinophils (see below).
Allergic bronchopulmonary fungal disease (see above) can mimic Churg-Strauss syndrome because both occur in asthmatic patients and feature eosinophilic pneumonia along with granulomatous inflammation rich in eosinophils.
Some cases that fit this definition are encountered in asthmatic patients as part of the spectrum of allergic bronchopulmonary fungal disease (see Figure 4 and "Aspergillus" above).
