|Abstract: ||Aspergillomas are often misdiagnosed as tuberculosis (TB) in developing countries where
the prevalence of TB is high, hemoptysis is often equated with TB, and most patients are
diagnosed clinically. This report describes the case of a patient being treated for smearnegative
TB who presented with hemoptysis and was found to have an aspergilloma.|
