Aspergillus species are widespread in the environment with Aspergillus fumigatus being the most common pulmonary pathogen. In a person with normal immunity, Aspergillosis in the lung can mainfest as hypersensitivity reaction. It can also present as an invasive infection in immunocompromised patients. In its severe form, invasive pulmonary aspergillosis (IPA) is commonly seen in severe immunodeficient individuals and is often fatal. We report a case of IPA in an immunocompetent patient following severe dengue fever who was successfully treated with voriconazole.
