The Ramphastidae family, order Piciformes, comprising toucans and aracaris, are indigenous to South America, ranging from southern Mexico to northern Argentina.
Nevertheless, further investigation of this agent in toucans and aracaris should be performed to determine the clinical importance of chlamydiosis in these avian species.
Since descriptions of infectious diseases in toucans and aracaris are lacking in veterinary literature, the proposal of this case report is to describe serological findings associated with the detection of C.
The loft was composed of eight species of ramphastids: seven tocotoucans (Ramphastos toco), four red-breasted toucans (Ramphastos dicolorus), four red-billed toucans (Ramphastos tucanus), four spot-billed toucanets (Selenidera maculirostris), three black-necked aracaris (Pteroglossus aracari), one saffron toucanet (Pteroglossus bailloni), one channel-billed toucan (Ramphastos vitellinus) and one chestnut-eared aracari (Pteroglossus castanotis).
psittaci were detected in four of the eight studied species: Pteroglossus bailloni (1/1; titers of 1:16), Ramphastos dicolorus (1/4; titers of 1:32), Ramphastos toco (1/7; titers of 1:16), and Pteroglossus aracari (1/3; titers of 1:32).
A familia Ramphastidae, cujas especies sao popularmente conhecidas como tucanos e aracaris apresentam atualmente trinta e tres especies distribuidas em seis generos (Andigna, Aulachorynchus, Baillonius, Pteroglossus, Ramphastos e Selenidera), e pertence a ordem Piciformes, a qual tambem pertence os pica-paus (familia Picidae).
