Allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis is an immunologic pulmonary disorder caused by hypersensitivity to Aspergillus fumigatus. This disorder is most commonly seen in patients with poorly controlled asthma and cystic fibrosis. It is rarely reported in chronic granulomatous disease patients; however, there are no cases reported with hematopoietic stem cell transplantation in the English literature. Herein, we report a patient with chronic granulomatous disease who had hematopoietic stem cell transplantation and subsequently developed allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis.
