Total IgE level traditionally has been used to monitor the clinical activity of allergic bronchopulmonary fungal disease. On the basis of similar IgE behavior associated with recurrence of AFS, total IgE levels have been proposed as a useful indicator of AFS clinical activity.
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).
To summarize, bronchocentric granulomatosis is best thought of as an unusual and distinctive tissue reaction seen predominantly in allergic bronchopulmonary fungal disease and various other infections, rather than as the discrete entity that Liebow135 had originally envisioned.
