First Report of Oral Candidiasis by Candida lusitanea in a Red Kite (Milvus milvus, Lineu 1758)
Keywords:Candida lusitanea, Milvus milvus, yeast, candidiasis
A free-living red kite (Milvus milvus, Lineu 1758) adult male was admitted to the CERAS - Centro de Estudos e Recuperação de Animais Selvagens (Castelo Branco, Portugal) debilitated and with injuries caused by lead projectiles. During the physical exam small lesions, not larger than 7 mm, were observed in the distal portion of the soft palate, laterally to the choanae, compatible with oral candidiasis. Candida lusitanea was the agent isolated from the exudate that was removed from the lesions. This is the first reported case of C. lusitanea associated to oral candidiasis and the first time this bird species was associated with this agent.
