Cutaneous manifestation of Marek's disease in shank and toes of indigenous chickens



Cutaneous manifestation of Marek's disease in shank and toes of indigenous chickens



Indian Journal of Veterinary Pathology 11: 1-6



Skin tumours in the shank and toes of two Aseel chickens with Marek's disease (MD) lesions in various visceral organs were observed in a flock of indigenous fowls. The tumours varying in size and number in each shank, had either encrusted or smooth surfaces, with a histopathological picture similar to that seen in MD of protected skin. Microscopic lesions in the shank skin were, however, absent in birds without gross lesions in the skin.
