The infection has symptom fever, has symptom headache, has symptom rash, has symptom chills, and has symptom pneumonia.

MalaCards based summary: Ornithosis, also known as psittacosis, is related to pneumonia and trichostrongyloidiasis, and has symptoms including fever, headache and rash. An important gene associated with Ornithosis is CD40LG (CD40 Ligand), and among its related pathways is Toxoplasmosis. Affiliated tissues include testes, lung and brain.
