The presence of filamentous fungi, resistant to acid, of the genera Aspergillus, Fusarium or Penicillium, can cause several superficial abrasions on the corneal layer. Then, fungi produce hyaline filaments in the internal part. The presence of these lesions warranties clinical diagnosis of mycosis in the gizzard.
