Comment
Both a primary and opportunistic pathogen as well as a major allergen.
Its thermotolerance is a trait critical to its ability to thrive in mammalian and avian infections and in the even-higher temperature ranges characteristic of composts (that is, up to 70 degree).
Isolated from a patient who ultimately died from invasive aspergillosis.
