Pathogen Characteristics

Top of page

Duck hepatitis is caused by at least three different viruses, previously referred to as types I, II and III (Tseng and Tsai, 2007; Wang et al., 2008). Genome sequencing studies have revealed a great deal about them (Kim et al., 2006, 2007; Tseng et al., 2007; Fu et al., 2009; Todd et al., 2009; Yun et al., 2010; Wei et al., 2012), including that type III is not a picornavirus, as once thought, but an astrovirus, now called duck astrovirus-2 (DAstV-2; Todd et al., 2009). Type II is also an astrovirus (subsequently renamed as duck astrovirus 1 (DAstV-1; Todd et al., 2009), and type I is a picornavirus.

DHV I, the most common of the three viruses, with international distribution, is now known as duck hepatitis A virus (DHAV) in the new genus Avihepatovirus.

Disease(s) associated with this pathogen is/are on the list of diseases notifiable to the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE). The distribution section contains data from OIE's databases on disease occurrence. Please see the AHPC library for further information from OIE, including the International Animal Health Code and the Manual of Standards for Diagnostic Tests and Vaccines.
