Abstract

We have studied, in restrospect, 200 bronchoalveolar lavages (BAL) inpatients infected with Human Immunodeficiency Virus. Aspergillus has been encountred in 12 BAL corresponding to 10 patients (6 % of cases):Aspergillus fumigatus (9 cases). Aspergillus niger (1 case). Aspergillus nidulans (1 case) and both A. fumigatus-Aspergillus flavus (1 case). There are not preferential association between Aspergillus and the other micro-organisms such bacteria, mycobacteria, virus, Pneumocystiscarinii. BAL cell examination shows that neutrophil count is the lowest (mean 8 %) when Aspergillus is isolated. On the contrary, the alveolar macrophage count is the highest (mean 76 %). Among the blood lymphocytes, CD4 cell counts's mean is 11 cells/mm(3). This value is the lowest among the other CD4 cell counts found with the others opportunistic organismes. A number of risk factors seems associated with Aspergillus fumigatus isolates. So, the presence of this fungus in bronchoalveolar lavage in HIV-infected patients must be considered as potentiallypathogenic.
