Answer

Hypersensitivity or allergic reactions include allergic bronchial asthma (Aspergillus species, Candida species), allergic bronchopulmonary mycoses (Aspergillus species, Candida species), bronchocentric granulomatosis (necrotizing granulomatous replacement and eosinophilic infiltration of bronchial mucosa in infection with Aspergillus species), and extrinsic allergic alveolitis (malt worker's lung, farmer's lung).
