Allergic Broncho Pulmonary Aspergillosis (ABPA) is an immunological allergic disorder and asthmatic patients are predisposed to ABPA. Although, ABPA commonly develops in the third and fourth decades but no age group is unaffected from the disease. Youngest case of ABPA in India so far reported was four years of age. This case report is about a young child of bronchial asthma with ABPA aged four years and nine days only, from arid zone of country. Her diagnosis of ABPA was supported by clinical, serological and radiological findings. This case report concludes the importance of early diagnosis and treatment of ABPA along with general awareness for the disease.
