The viral diseases of the parrot family are a major frustration for the aviculturalist and the avian veterinarian. Through a worldwide effort, however, progress is being made toward understanding and managing these diseases. Unfortunately, emerging information is disseminated in literature sources not readily available to most avian practitioners. The purpose of this review is to consolidate current knowledge in a rapidly evolving area of veterinary medicine. The once tenuous possibility of controlling psittacine viral diseases is becoming reality.
