Aspergillus species are ubiquitous fungi, commonly found in soil, water and decaying matter. Generally humans get infection through inhalation of spores. The spores come in lung and then disseminate to cause systemic aspergillosis. This prospective and experimental study was carried out at Department of Microbiology, MGM Medical College and Hospital, Navi Mumbai. Total 86 blood samples were included in this study. ELISA test was done for detection of IgM antibodies of A. fumigatus.  IgM antibody of A. fumigatus was detected by ELISA test in patient serum was 18 out of 86 (20.93%). ELISA method found more sensitive and specific method for detection of invasive aspergillosis.

Keywords: Aspergillosis, Aspergillus fumigatus, Antibody,Enzyme Linked Immunosorbent Assay.
