Abstract

Ventricular candidiasis is consistently one of the most prominent pathologic conditions diagnosed in stone curlews (Burhinus oedicnemus) in the United Arab Emirates, predominately affecting the captive population. Predisposing factors are a humid environment, stress, immunosuppression, inadequate nutrition, and an extended use of oral antibiotics. In this report, we describe the clinical signs, diagnosis, and pathologic result in stone curlews with ventricular candidiasis. La candidiasis ventricular es una de las condiciones patológicas más prominentes que se diagnostica en alcaravanes comunes (Burhinus oedicnemus) en los Emiratos Arabes Unidos, que afecta predominantemente a la población cautiva. Los factores predisponentes son un ambiente húmedo, el estrés, la inmunodepresión, la nutrición inadecuada y el uso prolongado de antibióticos orales. En este informe, se describen los signos clínicos, el diagnóstico, y los hallazgos patológicos en alcaravanes comunes con candidiasis ventricular.
