Abstract

Candida albicans, a yeast-like fungi, is the primary cause of candidiasis or candidiosis. C. albicans is a normal inhabitant of the human alimentary canal, as well as that of many species of lower animals. Ingestion in food or in water is the usual means for its transmission. Contaminated environments, such as litter from poultry and gamebird rearing facilities, refuse disposal areas, discharge sites for poultry operations, and areas contaminated with human waste have all been suggested as sources for Candidia exposure for birds.
