What is Aspergillus?
Aspergillus is a fungus. Its spores are present in the air around us, both indoors and out. Most people, with healthy immune systems, breathe in Aspergillus spores every day without getting sick. However, people with weakened immune systems, allergies or lung diseases are at risk from aspergillosis.
Aspergillosis is a group of diseases which can result from aspergillus infection. Some types are mild, but some are very serious.
