In a study investigating the causes of death in these animals, the 11 cases of aspergillosis were restricted to the respiratory tract and no dissemination was observed HOCKEN, Clinical cases of aspergillosis have already been diagnosed in chickens IslanCeolin et al. Droppings from birds were evaluated and divided into two groups: A detailed necropsy was done in the 15 penguins and all macroscopic visual lesions from each animal were measured and technically described in separate records.

Identification and characterization of Aspergillus fumigatus isolates from broilers. Microsatellite typing for A. Species within the section Fumigati have been described as human pathogens, particularly A.

Concerning filamentous fungi, species belonging to the genus Aspergillus were most commonly reported regarding isolates from psittacine droppings Fraga et al.

Pennsylvania State University Press. Materials and Methods Collection of samples. After 7 days of incubation 37 0 to 40 0 C the colonies of Aspergillus were subcultured onto Czapeck-Dox Agar for final macro and microscopical identification.


Cryptococcus species are widely distributed in nature and can be isolated from various environmental sources such as air, soil, bird excreta, water, animals and decomposing wood Villar et al. In our study, infection was restricted to the respiratory system in only All isolates were obtained from healthy broilers.
