Abstract

A 5-year-old intact male silky bantam chicken was presented for chronic epidermal cysts within the comb. Results of diagnostic tests and histopathologic examination of biopsy specimens demonstrated epidermal cysts associated with Aspergillus fumigatus and Alternaria species. Physical removal of the cysts and treatment with systemic itraconazole and topical miconazole resolved the lesions.
