Associated Conditions for Mold allergy

Excerpts on associated medical conditions for Mold allergy:

Fungi or microorganisms related to them may cause other health problems similar to allergic diseases. Some kinds of Aspergillus may cause several different illnesses, including both infections and allergy. These fungi may lodge in the airways or a distant part of the lung and grow until they form a compact sphere known as a "fungus ball." In people with lung damage or serious underlying illnesses, Aspergillus may grasp the opportunity to invade the lungs or the whole body.

About associated conditions for Mold allergy:

Associated conditions are those which appear statistically related, but do not have a clear cause or effect relationship. Whereas the complications are caused by Mold allergy, and underlying causes may be causes of Mold allergy, the following list shows associated conditions that simply appear with higher frequency in people who have Mold allergy. In some cases, there may be overlap between this list and risk factors for Mold allergy. People with Mold allergy may be more likely to get a condition on the list of associated conditions, or the reverse may be true, or both. Whether they are causes of, caused by, or simply coincidentally related to Mold allergy is not always clear. For general information, see Associated Condition Misdiagnosis.
