Abstract:

Viral hepatitis contributes significantly to the morbidity and mortality of at-risk individuals, particularly in chronic, untreated infections. Clinical symptoms vary from none (asymptomatic carriers) to fulminant liver failure. Hepatitis viruses A, B, C, D, and E are responsible for the majority of liver disease, with hepatitis A and E viruses being the least common of the culprits.
