Pathology and Microbiology
In 1983, twenty-two outbreaks of viral arthritis/tenosynovitis were diagnosed in a 6-month period on 18 fryer farms of one commercial operation located in western Washington. The main source of the reovirus infection was traced to a breeder flock that supplied progeny chicks to all of the affected farms.
