Answer

If the diagnosis is delayed or the patient remains in the mold-contaminated environment, the disease is liable to become chronic. No data are available regarding the prognosis for people with EAA. One might assume that those with chronic disease are likely to develop cor pulmonale followed by right heart failure.
