Clin Case Rep. 2021 Jan 15;9(3):1379-1382. doi: 10.1002/ccr3.3781. eCollection 2021 Mar.

ABSTRACT

As diagnostic algorithms for cystic fibrosis (CF) continue to evolve, education of general practitioners is essential to prevent delayed diagnosis of CF and allow prompt referral to CF centers. For patients suffering from allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis (ABPA), CF should be at the top of the differential diagnosis.
