Non-A-E hepatitis

How does an individual become affected by non-A-E hepatitis?

The cause of non-A-E hepatitis has not yet been discovered. Some researchers suggest that there are likely several unidentified infectious agents, such as unknown viruses, that may cause this disease. Individuals affected by this condition have not consistently been found to have exposures to known risk factors for hepatitis (such as having dental work or medical procedures, working in health care, or traveling to areas where hepatitis is common).

What is non-A-E hepatitis?

Non-A-E hepatitis , sometimes referred to as hepatitis X, is a disease of the liver that is diagnosed when there is swelling of the liver (hepatitis) but examination and testing does not identify a cause. Symptoms of non-A-E hepatitis may include feeling tired or unwell (malaise), nausea, vomiting, pain in the abdomen, and fever. Non-A-E hepatitis usually goes away on its own, but it can become a chronic condition in a small proportion (12%) of affected individuals. The cause of non-A-E hepatitis is currently unknown.
