Goose parvovirus (GPV) is a well-known causative agent of gosling plague (GP), which is an acute, contagious, and fatal disease often referred to as Derzsy′s disease [1]. Being a member of the genus Dependoparvovirus within the family Parvoviridae [2-5], GPV was first described as a clinical entity by Fang in 1962 [6].
