Abstract

This is the first report of the isolation of H13N2 avian influenza virus (AIV) subtype from domestic turkeys. This subtype was also isolated from nearby surface water. The observation of large numbers of gulls in close association with turkeys on range before the virus isolations suggests that this virus subtype was transmitted from gulls to range turkeys. Turkey flocks infected by this virus subtype did not show any clinical signs of the disease, although seroconversion did occur. The H13N2 isolates were found to be non-pathogenic in chickens. /// Este es el primer reporte del subtipo H13N2 del virus de influenza aviar en pavos. Este subtipo también fue aislado a partir de aguas locales. La observación de grandes cantidades de gaviotas en estrecha asociación con los pavos criados en sistema extensivo antes del aislamiento del virus sugiere que este subtipo de virus fue transmitido por las gaviotas a los pavos. Las parvadas de pavos infectados por este subtipo viral no mostraron signos clínicos de enfermedad aunque se detectó seroconversión. El virus H13N2 aislado no fue patógeno para pollos.
