ABSTRACT
The article describes the case of pulmonary disease associated with Mycobacterium intermedium in a green oropendola. The clinical condition of the bird deteriorated despite treatment of enrofloxacin and toltrazuril, then of itraconazole. It has been concluded that the oropendola acquired the infection via inhalation because of the extensive granulomatous lesions found in its lungs and air sacs. The addition of M. intermedium to the list of agents causing mycobacteriosis in birds is recommended.
