Avian encephalomyelitis 

 

Avian encephalomyelitis is a viral infection affecting the CNS of several species of birds. Signs include tremors, ataxia, and weakness that progresses to paralysis. In severe outbreaks, morbidity and mortality may exceed 50%. Diagnosis is based on history, clinical signs, histopathology, and isolation of the virus. A live vaccine is available to prevent transmission and reduce egg losses.
