Hepatitis A

Alternate Names : Hepatovirus Infection

Hepatitis A | Symptoms & Signs | Diagnosis & Tests | Prevention & Expectations | Treatment & Monitoring

How is the infection diagnosed?

The healthcare provider may suspect hepatitis A after doing a physical examination and checking liver function tests. Another blood test, often drawn at the same time as the liver function tests, can confirm that hepatitis A is the cause of the symptoms.

Hepatitis A recurs in about 10% of people. This results in symptoms that come and go, along with abnormal liver function tests over several weeks to a few months.
