Aspergillus fumigatus from normal and condemned carcasses with airsacculitis in commercial poultry

Among them, 40 genotypes More recently, Elhariri and colleagues evaluated excreta species lovebirds and cockatiels concluded that the excreta of these birds can play a role as a risk reservoir of C. These isolates came from 23 flocks located in different counties.

Aspergillus fumigatus in Poultry. Birds of prey and from Psittacidae family are host to fungal microbiota and play an important role in aved epidemiology of zoonoses. Brazilian Journal of Microbiology, v. Archivos de Medicina Veterinariavol. Services on Demand Journal.

The clinical and pathological findings based on the lesions found at necropsy are described herein.

Aspergillosis is one of the main causes of mortality in birds. Actually, the strains typed represent only a small part of the fungal population potentially inhaled by the birds, and considering that environmental or clinical strains have the potential to cause disease in susceptible birds, our results are important to know if only one genotype could be prevalent in the current system of commercial poultry.

Received on June 24, The lungs of birds condemned due to airsacculitis were defined as “case”, and the lungs obtained from normal birds from the same batch were defined as “control”.


Thereafter, pure colonies were tested based on classic biochemical and microscopic features. Isolation of Cryptococcus neoformans var. Pathogenisis of Aspergillus fumigates in invasive aspergillosis.

Aspergillus fumigatus in Poultry. The clinical signs are usually nonspecific and related to anorexia, weight loss, lethargy, or respiratory system impairment rhinitis, dyspnea and changes in vocalization. Clinical cases of aspergillosis have already been diagnosed in chickens, turkeys, ostriches, rheas, penguins, geese Carrasco et al. In another study with oiled seabirds in rehabilitation, aspergillosis lesions were also observed in the lungs, air sacs, liver and kidneys BALSEIRO et al.

The resulting powder was transferred to labeled Erlenmeyer flasks containing 30 mL of saline solution 0.

Pereira reported the isolation of Cryptococcus neoformans in Aratinga mitrata residing at a zoo. Aspergillosis is most frequently observed in commercial poultry, in which the disease causes stress. During the interaction between conidia and host immune cells, necrotic debris and caseous exudates are deposited in these sites.


To determine associations between the risk exposures of categorical variables, the Pearson Chi square test was used. Mycological identification frequently rely only on conventional cultivable methods on Sabouraud Dextrose Agar and Malt Extract Agar.

The pulmonary parenchyma showed hemorrhages with multiple granulomatous nodules and necrotic areas. The literature shows that in some cases, cultures of fungi and cytopathological examination of respiratory specimens often yield negative results and a lack sensitivity for detecting fungal elements in an early stage of infection Tarrand et al.

All these aspergillosis cases were confirmed through mycological and histopathological evaluation of the lung and other altered tissue collected during the necropsy. In this work, Candida famata and Candida krusei were also ages.
