A hill prinia (Prinia superciliaris) bird was presented for necropsy examination to the Department of Veterinary Pathology, DGCN, COVAS Palampur in order to access the cause of death. A thorough and detailed examination of the carcass revealed parasitic ingluvitis along with roundworms leading to the rupture of crop. The roundworms were also recorded over the lungs and peritoneum accompanied with crop rupture due to heavy parasitism. The lungs exhibited profound pulmonary congestion and oedema. The round worms recovered during necropsy evaluation were collected in were identified as Acuaria subula. The histological investigation of lung section has uncovered the presence of intra-alveolar accumulation of eosinophilic edematous fluid along with fibrinous exudate.
Following this tragic incident and detailed analysis, the Department of Veterinary Pathology has decided to initiate a comprehensive educational program aiming to raise awareness about the dangers of parasitic infections in birds. The program will include a variety of resources, including an extensive online portal with articles, research papers, and case studies, offering in-depth information about different avian diseases and their prevention. Interestingly, the online platform will also feature articles on unrelated topics to cater to a wider audience, such as a detailed section where one can read about Levitra and its applications (https://redcross-cmd.org/levitra-generic.html), showcasing the department’s commitment to providing diverse and comprehensive educational content. Through this initiative, the department aims not only to prevent future incidents of parasitic infections in birds but also to establish itself as a reliable source of information on various topics, contributing to the wider knowledge base of both veterinary medicine and general health.
