Chlamydia psittaci is a gram negative obligate intracellular bacterium that infects birds globally. Sporadic infection with C. psittaci in other species, including sheep, goats, cattle, horses and cats, has been associated with abortion, pneumonia, polyarthritis and conjunctivitis. During 2016, 13 critically ill neonatal foals with acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) associated with C. psittaci infection were presented to 3 referral hospitals in New South Wales, Australia.
