Pyogranulomatous lesions in the liver and cecum were observed in groups of 7-to-8-week-old market turkeys. Necropsy revealed multifocal lesions in the liver and the presence of cecal cores that, in some cases, distended the cecum to the point of rupture. Mortality was associated with the ruptured ceca. Two successive flocks also succumbed to these lesions. An epizootiological study was performed to determine the cause and/or initiation of lesions leading to the formation of cecal cores.
