Identification of parvovirus-like particles associated with three outbreaks of mortality in young pheasants (Phasianus colchicus)

Journal of Veterinary Diagnostic Investigation 8(1): 108-112

Identification of parvovirus-like particles associated with three outbreaks of mortality in young pheasants (Phasianus colchicus)

During the 1994 hatching season, a pathological syndrome was observed in 3 different rearing facilities of pheasants in northern Italy, all located within a 20 km radius. The disease was characterized by depression, anorexia, mild enteritis, and sudden and high mortality in 15- to 25-day-old pheasants. Several birds from each outbreak were examined PM. Grossly, blood suffusions or small subcutaneous haemorrhagic areas and muscular scattered pinpoint haemorrhages were observed.
