IBD high morbidity or mortality
Big impact of IBD
- gangrenous dermatitis, e. coli, inclusion body hepatitis, vaccination failures
2 strains of IBD

- Highly virulent - everywhere in world but Canada, hemmorrhagic necrotizing bursal lesions
IBD serotype 1 has how many subtypes, which is non pathogenic
How is IBD transmitted?
Only horizontal, very peristant in barns, very resistant to disinfection
If you have a plate of bursas how can you tell if it is IBD
- Heterogenous small bursas compared to normal
