Chronic fibrosing pulmonary aspergillosis

Last revised by Jeremy Jones on 20 Sep 2021

Chronic fibrosing pulmonary aspergillosis (CFPA) is the terminal fibrosing evolution of chronic cavitary pulmonary aspergillosis (CCPA).


This situation tends to occur when CCPA remains untreated resulting in extensive pulmonary fibrosis. The fibrosis may be limited to one or both upper lobes but can also involve a whole hemithorax.
