Abstract

Chlamydia psittaci is an intracellular organism causing psittacosis which is found in psittacine birds and can be transmitted to humans by inhalation or direct contact. Here we present a case of human psittacosis mimicing acute monocytic leukemia which demonstrates an extraordinary clinical presentation of psittacosis.
