Acute hepatitis

Acute hepatitis consists of an acute inflammation of the liver that makes the liver not work properly. This is normally brought on by a virus, pharmaceuticals or other toxins.

The symptoms are very varied and often go unnoticed. The most common are fatigue, poor appetite, nausea, muscle pain and fever. Occasionally, a yellow tinge appears in the whites of the eyes and the skin (jaundice), and urine becomes dark in colour (choluria). Symptoms may persist for one to three months before recovery. Hepatitis B and C may become chronic.
