Hepatitis
Hepatitis is an inflammation of the liver. Different viruses cause hepatitis. All of these viruses cause acute, or short-term, viral hepatitis. The hepatitis B, C, and D viruses can also cause chronic hepatitis where the infection can be prolonged, even lifelong. The most common forms world-wide are hepatitis A, B and C. Although hepatitis A and B can be prevented by vaccine, there is no vaccine for hepatitis C. In Canada, hepatitis C is the leading cause of liver transplants. (Canadian Liver Foundation)
