In a farm of about 100 layer birds in Hyderabad, around 20 birds of 6 weeks age showed symptoms of Ranikhet Disease (RD) during winter season and post mortem was done on 6 dead birds. The post-mortem of these birds showed very typical lesions of RD like pin-point haemorrhages at the tip of the proventricular glands, haemorrhagic ulcers in the intestinal wall and caecal tonsils. The disease was diagnosed as Ranikhet disease by the typical lesions of RD which are explained in this article.
