BACKGROUND: Most of the findings related to the noxious effect of mold sensitization on asthma come from investigations based on Alternaria alternata, Cladosporium herbarum, and Aspergillus fumigatus. However, species such as Penicillium spp, Cladosporium sphaerospermum, Cladosporium cladosporioides, or Aspergillus versicolor display a more pronounced indoor tropism, and their potential harmful respiratory effects cannot be neglected. OBJECTIVE: The goal of this work was to relate mold sensitizations with asthma severity and with the level of indoor mold contamination among mold-sensitiz…
