Researchers classify lesion from trichomonosis in birds

Recommended Posts

Oral avian trichomonosis is an infection caused by parasitic protozoon Trichomonas gallinae. By infecting mainly the oropharyngeal and crop mucosa, the severe lesions can cause the death of the birds due to suffocation or starvation, by preventing them from swallowing, or causing a lethal systemic infection. In order to facilitate the prognostication and to establish the best treatment of this infection, especially in the case of birds of prey, researchers from the CEU Cardenal Herrera (CEU UCH), Complutense of Madrid (UCM), Católica de Valencia (UCV) universities and the Native Fauna and its Habitat Rehabilitation Group (GREFA) have published the first scale of avian lesions caused by trichomonosis in international scientific journal Veterinary Parasitology.
