WHAT DOES HEPATITIS A MEAN IN ENGLISH?

hepatitis A

Hepatitis A

Hepatitis A is an acute infectious disease of the liver caused by the hepatitis A virus.[1] Many cases have little or no symptoms especially in the young.[2] The time between infection and symptoms, in those who develop them, is between two and six weeks.[3] When there are symptoms they typically last eight weeks and may include: nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, yellow skin, fever, and abdominal pain.[2] Around 10–15% of people experience a recurrence of symptoms during the six months after the initial infection.[2] Acute liver failure may rarely occur with this being more common in the elderly.[2] It is usually spread by eating or drinking food or water contaminated with infected feces.[2] Shellfish which have not been sufficiently cooked is a relatively common source.[4] It may also be spread through close contact with an infectious person.[2] While children often do not have symptoms when infected they are still able to infect others.[2] After a single infection a person is immune for the rest of their life.[5] Diagnosis requires blood testing as the symptoms are similar to those of a number of other diseases.[2] The hepatitis A vaccine is effective for prevention.
