Abstract

A 36-year-old man had a pulmonary infection with a cavity in the right upper lobe caused by Mycobacterium xenopi. A superinfection by Aspergillus fumigatus occurred 1 year later. Both organisms were found in the resected lung specimen. The patient remained asymptomatic after surgery. The superinfection of healed tuberculous lesions by 'atypical' mycobacteria or Aspergillus species is well known but the co-existence of the 2 organisms is very rare.
