Avian rhinotracheitis (ART), initially named turkey rhinotracheitis (TRT), is now more frequently referred to as avian pneumovirus (APV) infection. Avian pneumovirus (APV) (or avian metapneumoviruses) causes respiratory diseases and/or egg drops in species such as turkey, chicken, Muscovy or Pekin duck. Based on analysis of nucleotide and predicted amino acid sequence avian pneumoviruses (APVs) are identified as three subgroups A , B (originated from Europe) and C (originated from US). French isolates obtained in the mid 1980s, which did not fit antigenically and genetically into any of the thee three subgroups, were proposed as subgroup D.
