turkey adenovirus 3 A virus in the family Adenoviridae, unassigned to a genus, which causes turkey hemorrhagic enteritis. A widespread infection of turkeys recognized in Europe, N America, Asia and Australia. Disease usually apparent in 4- to 12-week-old turkeys. There is short-term depression with bloody droppings, followed by death or recovery. Mortality varies from 1 to 60%. The intestine is filled with blood, and death probably results from blood loss. Incubation period 5-6 days. Intestinal contents are infectious only during the acute phase of disease. In chickens the infection is usually subclinical. Pheasants are susceptible with considerable mortality. See also marble spleen disease of pheasants and fowl adenovirus 2. Synonym: turkey hemorrhagic enteritis virus.
