Hepatitis - Minnesota Dept. of Health


"Hepatitis" means inflammation of the liver. This condition can be caused by alcohol, chemicals, drugs and viruses that attack the liver. The information on this site primarily concerns viral Hepatitis A, Hepatitis B, and Hepatitis C, which are the three most common types in the United States.

CDC is currently working with health departments across the country to identify children with hepatitis of unknown cause. At this time, we believe adenovirus could be the cause of some of these reported illnesses, but the investigation is looking for other possible causes and contributing factors. For more information on the investigation and what you can do refer to CDC: Children with Hepatitis of Unknown Cause.
