The article presents a study that investigates adenoviral gizzard erosions in chicken flocks from 1995 to 2006 in Northern Italy. It cites that five to 35 eroded gizzards were recorded from 12 fowl adenoviral outbreaks during diagnostic postmortem examination. Results of the study revealed the similarity in the features of adenoviral gizzard erosion cases in Japan and Italy. Moreover, it suggests the need for further studies on the incidence and epidemiological features of gizzard erosion.
