Hepatitis A Infection and Prevention

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Hepatitis A infection is one of the most commonly reported vaccine-preventable diseases in the United States. Clinical illness, characterized by fever, malaise, jaundice, and nausea, caused by hepatitis A virus (HAV) is similar to hepatitis caused by other viral pathogens. Although most cases of hepatitis A are self-limited, fulminant hepatitis resulting in death may occur. Widespread routine childhood vaccination against hepatitis A has resulted in an impressive decrease in hepatitis A infections, with a notable diminishment of previous racial or ethnic and geographic disparities.
