Abstract: Pathological studies of Japanese quail, which were inoculated intraperitoneally with JM strain of Marek's disease herpesvirus (MDHV) at one day of age or infected by contact with inoculated-quails, were described. A group of quails accidentally infected with Marek's disease (MD) and other uninfected normal quails were also included in the present experiments. The quails were examined for various periods from 30 to 360 days. Some birds showed slightly enlarged livers, spleens and gonads, and the walls of the duodenum were thickened. The histopathological lesions characterized by lymphoreticular cell proliferation, however, were found in various organs or tissues of these infected quails, and the lesions were similar to those of chickens infected with MDHV. Immunofluorescent antigen existed in the epidermal layer of the skin and the superficial epithelial cells of the feather follicles.
