Animal sources for zoonotic transmission of psittacosis: a systematic review.

Lenny Hogerwerf, Inge Roof, Marianne J K de Jong, Frederika Dijkstra, Wim van der Hoek,

BACKGROUND:Human psittacosis, caused by Chlamydia (C.) psittaci, is likely underdiagnosed and underreported, since tests for C. psittaci are often not included in routine microbiological diagnostics. Source tracing traditionally focuses on psittacine pet birds, but recently other animal species have been gaining more attention as possible sources for human psittacosis. This ... Read more >>

Chlamydia psittaci in fulmars on the Faroe Islands: A causative link to South American psittacines eight decades after a severe epidemic.

Helen Wang, Jens-Kjeld Jensen, Anna Olsson, Fabien Vorimore, Rachid Aaziz, Lionel Guy, Patrik Ellström, Karine Laroucau, Björn Herrmann,

A psittacosis epidemic linked to fulmar hunting occurred on the Faroe Islands in the 1930s. This study investigates a plausible explanation to the 20% human mortality in this outbreak. Phylogenetic analysis showed that C. psittaci isolated from fulmars were closely related to the highly virulent 6BC strains from psittacines and ... Read more >>

2173. Detection of Chlamydia psittaci by rtPCR in Outbreak Specimens Tested at CDC—2018.

Olivia L McGovern, Kelly Shaw, Christine Szablewski, Julie Gabel, Caroline Holsinger, Skyler Brennan, Bernard Wolff, Alvaro J Benitez, Maureen Diaz, Kathleen A Thurman, Jonas Winchell, Miwako Kobayashi,

AbstractBackgroundPsittacosis is a respiratory illness caused by Chlamydia psittaci. The most commonly available diagnostic tests are serologic tests, which have low sensitivity and can cross-react with other chlamydial species. Serologic tests also require paired sera collected weeks apart, which is impractical for patient management. Real-time polymerase chain reaction (rtPCR) testing ... Read more >>

Survey on Chlamydiaceae in cloacal swabs from Swiss turkeys demonstrates absence of Chlamydia psittaci and low occurrence of Chlamydia gallinacean.

Barbara Renate Vogler, Michal Trinkler, Hanna Marti, Nicole Borel, Theresa Pesch, Barbara Prähauser, Richard Hoop, Prisca Mattmann, Sarah Albini,

In Switzerland, domestic turkey meat is a niche product. Turkeys are fattened on mixed family-based farms scattered across the country, with most providing access to an uncovered outdoor pasture for the birds. Swiss fattening turkeys may therefore get infected with Chlamydiaceae via wild birds or their faeces, potentially shedding these ... Read more >>
