Turkey hemorrhagic enteritis virus (THEV) is a member of the genus Siadenovirus and causes disease in turkey poults characterized by splenomegaly, bloody diarrhoea and death. The mechanism responsible for intestinal lesion formation and mortality is not known, although there is strong evidence that it is immune-mediated. All strains of THEV are serologically indistinguishable, although there are naturally occurring avirulent strains of THEV that replicate efficiently in turkeys without the… CONTINUE READING
