Bronchopulmonary aspergillosis (BPA) most commonly complicates the course of bronchial asthma and cystic fibrosis. The clinical presentation of allergic BPA (ABPA) is very similar to pulmonary tuberculosis, and signs and symptoms are usually poorly-controlled asthma, hemoptysis, and expectoration of mucus plugs, malaise, and fever. Intraoral presentation of aspergillosis is relatively a very rare condition, and the most commonly affected sites are the gingivae, followed by maxillary sinus, hard plate, soft plate, and tongue. Here, we are presenting a rare case report of nonhealing ulcer on right lateral border of tongue secondary to ABPA.
