Invasive pulmonary aspergillosis (IPA) is a life-threatening disease seen more commonly in critically ill patients and immunocompromised individuals. Tracheobronchial aspergillosis (TBA) is a variant of IPA which mimics bronchopneumonia usually but can present with acute respiratory distress. Clinical suspicion of the diagnosis and prompt treatment is lifesaving for TBA.
