Missing links in the divergence of Chlamydophila abortus from Chlamydophila psittaci
10) The most common infectious causes of sinusitis are gram-negative bacteria, in particular Chlamydophila psittaci
, and fungal organisms, most notably Aspergillus species.
Sporadic cases and an outbreak in Australia linked to contact with free-ranging (wild) birds have been reported; however, little information is available on the role of wild birds in the transmission of Chlamydophila psittaci
to humans (14,15)

The objective of this study was to isolate and identify suspected pathogens from peacocks and peacock farmers with severe pneumonia and to investigate its potential association with peacocks' pneumonia, caused by Chlamydophila psittaci
Three clays after acquisition, 10 randomly selected birds were tested for the presence of Chlamydophila psittaci
DNA by swabbing the conjunctiva, choana, and cloaca of each bird and submitting the culturette to a commercial laboratory (Chlamydophila psittaci
PCR test, Infectious Disease Laboratory, College of Veterinary Medicine, University of Georgia, Athens, GA, USA).
This disease is caused by a bacterium called Chlamydophila psittaci
and can be passed on to people.

The bug chlamydophila psittaci
can cause an illness that's called psittacosis.
First-line analysis clearly identified Chlamydophila psittaci
in the RNA sample from patient 2, but no sequences of obvious pathogenic origin were detected in samples from patient 1 (Figure).
