Answer

This disease appears to be most common in areas with hot, humid climates and high ambient mold-spore counts. Most AFS cases caused by Bipolaris spicifera are reported in Texas, Louisiana, and Georgia. At least 6 cases of allergic Aspergillus sinusitis were reported in the state of Texas. [11]
