Bronchocentric granulomatosis(BCG), first defined in 1973, consists of granulomatous replacement of bronchial mucous membrane, often with heavy eosinophilic reaction within and about the involved bronchi. Etiologic factors are from hypersensitivity reaction for aspergillus, most often from idiopathic form, and in others from being associated with mycobacterium, ecchinococcus, rheumatoid disease, ankylosing spodylitis, and glomerulonephritis. Diagnosis is responsible only for pathologic findings and, in many cases, is confirmed in postoperative findings with misleading for tumor, tuberculosis, infectious or Wegener's granulomatosis. We report a case of bronchocentric granulomatosis associated with aspergillus.
Key Words: Bronchocentric granulomatosis, Eosinophil, Aspergillus, Hypersensitivity reaction
