Adenovirus-like particles were identified by transmission electron microscopy in intranuclear inclusion bodies in the renal collecting tubules of a male common murre. The bird had been trapped in an oil-spill and had been cleaned and held in captivity before euthanasia. The presence of the virus appeared to be causing little or no renal disease. It is thought that this bird suffered activation of a latent viral infection as a result of the stress of oil intoxication, handling, and confinement.
