In case of infection with nephrotropic IB strain , the kidneys of affected birds are pale, mottled, and can be 2 to 3 times their normal size. Urates are common and can be identified easily in the kidneys and ureters at necropsy

Why not IBH? CARNIFORCYL15ML/100BIRDS FOR 5DAYS IS EFFECTIVE treatment.

I will certainly consider infection with nephrotropic strain of infections bronchitis virus. Histopathology will be helpful. PCR on kidneys for definitive diagnosis.

Pale , inflammed and hemorrhagic liver and kidneys are mostly seen in case of IBH and/or Mycotoxicosis.
But Finally PCR is helpful, As you can see such lesions in case of Avian Astrovirus infection, Nephropathogenic IB, Chicken Infectious Anemia, Sulphonamide toxicity, Dehydration and Pullorum Disease.
