Gross lesions included: collected as much as 4 mL of a straw-colored transudate in the pericardial sac. A case seen in a flock of 6000 broiler birds at an age of 10 days with a minimum mortality i.e. 15 per day. On necropsy, tentatively confirmed the case as IBH. Do we have any better therapeutic management to approach this disease? Thank you

In most of the viral infections infections symptomatic treatment is opted along with a look on secondary bacterial infection with use of appropriate antibiotic.
