A hill prinia (Prinia superciliaris) bird was presented for necropsy examination to the Department of Veterinary Pathology, DGCN, COVAS Palampur in order to access the cause of death. A thorough and detailed examination of the carcass revealed parasitic ingluvitis along with roundworms leading to the rupture of crop. The roundworms were also recorded over the lungs and peritoneum accompanied with crop rupture due to heavy parasitism. The lungs exhibited profound pulmonary congestion and oedema. The round worms recovered during necropsy evaluation were collected in were identified as Acuaria subula. The histological investigation of lung section has uncovered the presence of intra-alveolar accumulation of eosinophilic edematous fluid along with fibrinous exudate.
