Consolidation and mucoid impaction are qspergilosis most commonly described radiological features described in ABPA literature, though much of the evidence for consolidation comes from before the broncophlmonar of computed tomography CT scans.

A randomised trial of glucocorticoids in acute-stage allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis complicating asthma. Pulmonary aspergillosis clinical syndromes. Clinical efficacy and immunologic effects of omalizumab in allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis. As concentrations of Aspergillus aepergilosis increase, the immunological effect switches from pro-inflammatory to inhibitory, and further reduces phagocytic ability to clear Aspergillus. Despite this, there is evidence that acute-onset ABPA is improved by corticosteroid treatment as it reduces episodes of consolidation.

Whilst the benefits of using corticosteroids in the short term are notable, and improve quality of life scores, there are cases of ABPA converting to invasive aspergillosis whilst undergoing corticosteroid treatment.
