    Aspergillus Sinusitis- Causes, Symptoms, and Ayurvedic Treatment

The clinical spectrum of hypersensitivity manifestations in the respiratory tract includes Allergic Bronchopulmonary Aspergillosis (ABPA), Allergic Aspergillus sinusitis (AAS), and Aspergillus induced asthma.


    Fungal infections of the paranasal sinuses need to be recognized in order to avoid significant mortality and morbidity. The maxillary sinus is the most common sinus to be affected.
