Inclusion body hepatitis IBH of chickens

A disease caused by several different species in the genus Aviadenovirus. Causes a common and often fatal disease of chickens. At least 10 serotypes of Fowl adenovirus have been associated with natural outbreaks. There are liver lesions, intramuscular hemorrhages and aplastic anemia. Yolk-sac inoculation of chick embryos causes death. Plaques are produced on the CAM. Birds with antibodies and eggs from such birds are resistant to infection.
