Abstract: Case report of a 24 year old female patient with ALL that developed pulmonary invasive aspergillosis during aplastic phase of induction chemotherapy. She was treated with antibiotics and amphotericin B. After recovering from neutropenia, she developed a mycetoma in the inferior lobe of the right lung, which required lobectomy. Nine months after surgery the patient is well, in complete remission of ALL and with no evidence of infection. One month after lobectomy, chemotherapy had been reintroduced. Attention should be called to this form of therapy of Aspergillosis, as a successful way to eradicate this fungal infection that responds poorly to antifungal drugs currently used.
