Abstract

Mediastinal lymphadenopathy is often associated with tuberculosis, especially in a high burden country like India. We present a case of an asymptomatic female, who had mediastinal lymphadenopathy and middle lobe collapse, both of which pointed towards a diagnosis of tuberculosis. Patient was later diagnosed as a case of allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis (ABPA) on basis of clinical, radiological and serological findings. Hence, even in a high burden country and in background of bronchial asthma, ABPA should be kept as a differential diagnosis in patients presenting with mediastinal lymphadenopathy
