The negative titers in the hemagglutination tests, the presence of Feulgen-positive intranuclear inclusions in the cells of the granular layer of the cerebellum and the fibroblast culture, and the presence of viral particles with an icosahedral-herpetic morphology and a diameter of 100-170 nm all indicate that the etiology of this outbreak may be related to the encephalitis caused by herpesvirus, at present diagnosed only in Iraq and some African countries.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10553/124474||ISSN:||0005-2086||DOI:||10.2307/1590549||Source:||Avian diseases [ISSN0005-2086], v.30 (2), p. 416-420|
