Aspergillosis in an African grey parrot
Aspergillosis is an uncommon disease except in birds. A case of aspergillosis in a 26 year old female African grey parrot is presented and used to illustrate the typical clinical presentation and management of aspergillosis. Pathogenesis of the disease is discussed, along with the common risk factors. This paper also briefly discusses important diagnostic tests now available to help definitively diagnose the disease.
