Eosinophilic intracytoplasmic inclusion bodies or Bollinger bodies were visualized histologically in hypertrophied epithelial cells of epidermis of an eyelid of a tucuman Amazon parrot (Amazona tucumata). Material prepared from an eyelid was inoculated onto the chorio-allantoic membrance (CAM) of ten-day-old embryonated hen eggs. Bollinger bodies were visualized histologically from pock-like lesions on the CAM. Electron microscopy revealed typical poxvirus in the inclusions.
