General information on Aspergillosis
Aspergillosis develops in the nose and sinuses of cats. It is a fungal infection. The fungus itself is a quite common fungus that can be found in the environment. The fungal spores are inhaled, making the cat's nasal passages their home.
Symptoms of Aspergillosis
Symptoms of Aspergillosis may include excessive clear discharge from the nostrils, periodic episodes of nose bleeds, ulcerations on the outside of the nose, pain in the nose, and pain in the facial area.
Treatments for Aspergillosis
Aspergillosis may be treated by topical anti fungal drugs, as well as infusion of anti fungal drugs through a surgically implanted tube.

Aspergillosis experience by - Roberta
Selma, NC, USA
My cat had been sneezing on and off with a little blood in it every once in a while. After a few months she started showing mucus as well as blood in the sneezes. Woke up one morning and she could hardly breath with lots of mucus coming out of her nose. Took her to the vet, she could not figure out the cause. Took X-rays and noticed swelling in the sinus cavity. She gave her an anti-inflammitory shot and a weeks worth of Clavamox. She seems much better, but I noticed today when she sneezed a bit of blood came with it. Next step is to take her to the Vet school and see what they can do (VERY COSTLY). Good luck to anyone else who has to go through this!!!
