Hepatitis A is a viral infection of the liver. The liver becomes inflamed, tender, and swollen.

How Does Hepatitis A Occur?

Hepatitis A is caused by the Hepatitis A virus. The virus can be spread by contact with infected bowel movements. An infected person may pass Hepatitis A to others by not washing his or her hands, especially after using the bathroom. You might get the virus from: • Food handled by an infected person • Water contaminated with sewage • Shellfish taken from contaminated waters.


What are the Symptoms of Hepatitis A?

Symptoms usually appear 2 to 6 weeks after you are infected with the virus. Hepatitis A is sometimes so mild that there are no obvious symptoms. If you have symptoms, the illness usually begins with these flulike symptoms: • Loss of appetite • Fever • General aching • Tiredness. Smokers may lose their taste for cigarettes. After several days you may also have these symptoms: • Nausea and vomiting • Foul breath and bitter taste in the mouth • Dark brown urine • Yellowish skin and eyes (jaundice) • Pain just below the ribs on your right side, especially if you press on that part of your abdomen • Bowel movements that are whitish or light yellow and may be looser than normal.

How is Hepatitis A Diagnosed?

Your health care provider will ask about your medical history and symptoms. Your provider will examine your skin and eyes for signs of Hepatitis. Your provider will check your abdomen to see if the liver is enlarged or tender. You will have blood tests. If blood tests show that your liver is not working normally, your provider will do tests to find out if a virus is causing the problems. Tests that find a virus will also determine the type of virus. (Several types of viruses can cause Hepatitis.)
