Most cases of aspergillosis are caused by A. fumigatous group. Aspergillosis are abundant in the environment, they live in soil as saprophytes, deriving nutrients from dead plant and animal matter. Invasive aspergillosis typically occurs in severely immunocompromised patient. Aspergillus infection of breast and chest wall are rarely encountered in an young immunocompetent host.
