The Bombay chickens had been infected with SMAM-1, an avian adenovirus. This virus has not appeared in the United States, so when Dhurandhar arrived in Wisconsin, he began working with AD-36, a related adenovirus.

These inclusions were consistent with infection with a group II avian adenovirus, such as the viruses that cause hemorrhagic enteritis in turkeys, marble spleen disease of pheasants, and adenovirus-associated splenomegaly in chickens.
Based on a serologic survey to assess exposure to avian pathogens, birds (n = 69) were seronegative for West Nile virus, avian paramyxovirus type 1 (Newcastle disease virus), avian paramyxovirus types 2 and 3, avian influenza, infectious bursal disease, infectious bronchitis, Marek's disease (herpes), reovirus, avian encephalomyelitis, and avian adenovirus type 2.
The avian adenovirus has a predilection for lymphoid tissues, which can result in immunosuppression (Naeem et al., 1995b) and the birds were further immunocompromised owing to concurrent infections, with the involvement of lymphoid organs (Pettit and Carlson, 1972).
The disease is caused by avian adenovirus serotype-4 (Rabbani and Naeem, 1996).
