The bursa of Fabricius is a primary lymphoid organ of birds. Its main function is hematopoiesis and development of B lymphocytes.
It is located dorsal to the proctodic region of the cloaca and has the form of a small bag.
The surface of bursa is constituted by folds that give it the appearance of book sheets. The folds have follicles containing follicle-associated epithelial cells, lymphocytes, macrophages and plasma cells.
Its normal size is equivalent to the size of the spleen in healthy birds of 2 months, but may be diminished by the action of pathogens.
It is active in young birds and begins its atrophy after about 6 months.
