Two emus died with acute hemorrhagic enterocolitis. Eastern equine encephalomyelitis (EEE) virus was isolated in Vero cells from non-pooled samples of brain and intestine. Enterocolitis with splenic and hepatic necrosis was reproduced by intramuscular or oral inoculation of this isolate in two ostriches and three turkey poults. /// Dos emus murieron con enterocolitis hemorrágica aguda. A partir de muestras separadas de cerebro e intestino, se aisló el virus de la encefalitis equina del este en células Vero. Mediante la inoculación intramuscular u oral de esta cepa, se reprodujo una enterocolitis con necrosis hepática y esplénica en dos avestruces y tres pavitos.
