Fatty liver haemorrhagic syndrome (FLHS) in poultry is a non-infectious metabolic disease of unknown aetiology. An outbreak of fatty liver haemorrhagic syndrome (FLHS) was detected at post mortem from 42-week old caged Vencobb broiler breeders in a commercial farm (n =1200) of Bankura, West Bengal, India. The affected flock was showing severe loss of production and sudden death in peak summer month of June with 4% mortality in a week. Post mortem of the dead birds were performed and bacteriological examination were done as per standard procedure. At necropsy, dead birds had pale combs and wattles with significant liver lesions. The liver was enlarged, friable and greasy, yellowish brown with firm fatty layer deposits and haematoma was noticed in abdominal cavity. Escherichia coli was isolated in bacteriological examination of liver and spleen. Multiple factors like high dietary energy, stress of production and high ambient temperature may have precipitated the FLHS in broiler breeder hens.
