Mycotic Rhinitis in an Ostrich

Abstract

A 2-year-old female ostrich had become gradually emaciated over a 4-month period and subsequently died. Gross necropsy revealed a granulomatous mass filling the right nasal passageways. Microscopically, the mass contained numerous thin, regular-diameter, septate, branching fungal hyphae consistent with Aspergillus sp. and foreign plant material. This appears to be the first report of a mycotic granuloma limited to the nasal cavities of an ostrich or any other ratite species. /// Una avestruz hembra de dos años de edad había perdido peso gradualmente durante un período de 4 meses y subsecuentemente murió. La necropsia reveló una masa granulomatosa que llenaba el pasaje nasal derecho. Microscópicamente la masa contenía numerosas hifas delgadas, de tamaño regular, septadas, similares a Aspergillus sp., y material vegetal foráneo. Este parece ser el primer reporte de un granuloma micótico limitado a las cavidades nasales del avestruz o de cualquier especie de rátidos.
