The development of pulmonary aspergilloma and invasive aspergillosis is a rare complication of cystic fibrosis. We describe a 29-year-old patient with cystic fibrosis who had invasive pulmonary aspergillosis that was not cured by amphotericin B, liposomal amphotericin B, or itraconazole. This patient was subsequently successfully treated and cured with the novel antifungal agent voriconazole.
