Chicken anemia virus (CAV) exists worldwide; however, the infection of CAV in the Philippines has not been investigated. In this study, one out of three samples collected from diseased chickens farmed in Central Luzon, the Philippines, in 2017 was positive for the CAV genome based on real-time PCR testing. We conducted genetic characterization of the CAV strain. The phylogenetic analyses of the VP1 gene sequences and the protein-coding region of the CAV genome indicated that this CAV strain belongs to genotype III, which differs from vaccine strains 26P4, Cuxhaven 1, and Del-Ros that are already present in the country. The Filipino CAV strain is genetically related to the Polish, Chinese, and Taiwanese CAV strains.
