Pulmonary aspergilloma is caused by colonization and proliferation of Aspergillus in the preexisting cavities in lungs. Diagnosis of pulmonary aspergilloma is usually made based on chest X-ray findings, presence of serum precipitins against aspergillus and sputum culture. Bronchoscopic visualization of aspergilloma is very infrequent and more over calcification is rarely seen. We report a case of pulmonary aspergilloma, which was both calcified and visualized endoluminally during bronchoscopy.
