Acute necrotising zygomycotic ventriculitis in an eclectus parrot

Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperConference paper

Abstract

Acute necrosis of the ventriculusis a very uncommon lesion in birds.We describe a fatal case of acute necrotising ventriculitis caused by Rhizopus microsporus var. chinensis in a mature female eclectus parrot (Eclectusroratus). The bird presented acutely dull and lethargic, was vomiting and had  bright green droppings, suggestive of acute heavy metal poisoning. It was treated with fluids and chelation therapy but died within 12 hours. Necropsy, cytology, histopathology and culture results demonstrated fungal invasion of the ventriculus associated with transmural necrosis, haemorrhage, acute inflammation and abundant Rhizopusmicrosporus var. chinensis and lesser numbers of Candida krusei
