Avian influenza is a viral disease of several avian species in various parts of the world. The disease canrange from asymptomatic and mild to hyperacute and fatal. Avian influenza occurs infrequently in
humans
. It is seen as an occupational hazard, primarily to those associated with varied activities in thepoultry industry; employees in abattoirs, vaccinators, laboratory staff and other personnel. In most casesthe clinical picture is that of 
conjunctivitis
with rare systemic reactions. Avian influenza is reportabledisease in many countries. It has to be confirmed by virus isolation.
Transmission
:Secretions from infected birds, by wild birds and contaminated feed, equipment andpeople. Seabirds and migratory waterfowl comprise the main reservoir for avian influenza virus.
Antemortem findings
:1.The incubation period varies from a few hours to about seven days.
2.
The morbidity and mortality rates can reach 100 % in cases of highly pathogenic strain of theviruses.
3.
Marked depression, loss of appetite and watery diarrhea
4.
Coughing, sneezing, rales, excessive Lacrimation5.Drop in egg production in layers
6.
The conjunctiva is congested and swollen, and occasionally hemorrhagic.
7.
Swollen combs with cyanotic tips and hemorrhagic surface
8.
Edematous wattles and edema around the eyes, head and neck
9.
Ruffled feathers and dark red skin

Diffuse hemorrhages between the hocks and feet11.Blood in the cloaca12.Some birds may recover, even after being severely affected.
Postmortem findings
:1.Birds that die with the peracute form of AI may show no significant gross lesions2.Dehydration
3.
In highly pathogenic influenza virus, fibrinous exudates are found in air sacs, oviduct, peritoneumand pericardial sacs.Mild to moderate infection
4.
Inflammation of conjunctivae, trachea and air sacs5.Pronounced congestion of the musculature6.Ovarian regression in laying birds
7.
