Pulmonary artery pressure measurements obtained by a cardiac catheterization demonstrated a significant increase in the pulmonary vascular resistance during the acute stage of the disease. Six months after exclusion of exposure to the budgerigars the hemodynamic of the pulmonary circulation was normalized.
