Aspergillus spp. produce a wide range of invasive and sapropytic syndromes which may involve any tissue. Within a given tissue or organ the pathology and pathogenesis varies enormously, ranging from angioinvasive disease to non-invasive saprophytic disease. The individual invasive and saprophytic syndromes in which a causative role can be attributed to Aspergillus spp. are detailed specifically with reference to the underlying pathology and pathogenesis, the clinical setting and features, and the manner in which a diagnosis can be established.
