• Hepatitis is a term that means inflammation of the liver.

    Inflammation is a natural reaction of the body to injury and often causes swelling and tenderness.

    Alcohol, chemicals, drugs and viruses can all cause hepatitis.

    There are several different viruses that cause hepatitis, such as hepatitis A, hepatitis B or hepatitis C. Each of these viruses may produce similar symptoms and they can all infect and inflame the liver. The main difference between the viruses is how they are transmitted, the way they cause liver damage and the effects they have on a persons health.

    Hepatitis is described as either an acute or chronic illness. An acute illness will only last a short time and although it may be severe, most people recover from the illness within a few weeks with no lasting effects. A chronic illness is one that lasts a long time, often for the rest of a persons life.
