Few fungal species are common pathogens in avian species, and Aspergillus is by far the most common mycosis of poultry.
Mycoses are relatively uncommon diseases in poultry but are often devastating to the host supporting the fungal infection. The ability of fungi to infect animals is incidental to their maintenance. Propagation and dissemination occur because of their saprobic lifestyle; infection is a dead end, except for dermatophytoses, because mycoses are not contagious.
