Aspergillus fumigatus is a fungus known to cause respiratory infections, particularly in people with compromised immune systems. It mainly affects patients in hospitals and other healthcare settings. Aspergillus fumigatus produces spores that can spread through the air, and it can be hard to treat as it can resist common antifungal drugs.
