Bird Fancier’s Lung: a case report
Bird fancier’s lung is an uncommon form of hypersensitivity pneumonitis caused by airborne exposure to avian antigens. The symptoms resolve with cessation of the antigen exposure along with corticosteroid therapy. However, the disease, in its chronic form, can lead to irreversible pulmonary fibrosis. Hence, an early diagnosis and avoidance of the antigen is essential.
