Aspergillosis is a common respiratory disease in birds. Potentially all species can be affected inlcuding poultry, aviary and pet birds, and wild birds. Aspergillus fumigatus is the most frequent isolated fungus. Birds are more susceptible to aspergillosis than mammalian species and their predisposition to aspergillosis is attributed to anatomical and physiological peculiarities, which prevent the ejection and removal of inhaled fungal spores from the respiratory tract.

Abstract

Aspergillosis is a common respiratory disease in birds. Potentially all species can be affected inlcuding poultry, aviary and pet birds, and wild birds. Aspergillus fumigatus is the most frequent isolated fungus. Birds are more susceptible to aspergillosis than mammalian species and their predisposition to aspergillosis is attributed to anatomical and physiological peculiarities, which prevent the ejection and removal of inhaled fungal spores from the respiratory tract. In this review we describe the epidemiology, pathogenesis, clinical features, and the commonest lesions of avian aspergillosis. Diagnosis, therapy, and control strategies are also discussed.
