Gross and histopathological changes in the cloacal bursa of diseased broiler chickens



Gross and histopathological changes in the cloacal bursa of diseased broiler chickens



Philippine Journal of Veterinary Medicine 36(2): 61-71



The bursa of fabricius was obtained from 148 broilers (<49 days old) with respiratory and digestive disorders in Bulacan, Philippines. There was a large variation in bursal weight within each age group. Bursal weight and diameter decreased after 4 weeks of age, indicating involution. Gross changes were observed in 36.5% of the bursal samples and included intense redness with or without exudate, greyish colour with or without exudate and creamy white colour with exudate.
