Overview

Top of page

Infectious hypodermal and hematopoietic necrosis virus (IHHNV) is an economically important pathogen that causes shrimp diseases worldwide. IHHNV is highly contagious to several penaeid species, and it is usually fatal for Penaeus stylirostris, causing significant losses for shrimp farmers (Vega-Heredia et al., 2012).

IHHNV causes the chronic disease runt-deformity syndrome (RDS) in P. vannamei, characterized by reduced, irregular growth and cuticular deformities (Kalagayan et al., 1991; Bray et al., 1994; Lightner, 1996). IHHNV infection in P. monodon is usually subclinical, but RDS, reduced growth rates and reduced culture performance have been reported in IHHNV-infected stocks (Primavera and Quinitio, 2000; Chayaburakul et al., 2004).

'Infectious hypodermal and haematopoietic necrosis' is on the list of diseases notifiable to the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE). For further information on this disease from OIE, see the website: www.oie.int

Distribution

Top of page

IHHNV appears to have a worldwide distribution in both wild and cultured penaeid shrimp (Lightner, 1996; Lightner and Redman, 1998).
