Hepatitis overview

Hepatitis is an inflammation of the liver. Viruses cause most cases of hepatitis

. The hepatitis virus attacks the liver, causing inflammation. Inflammation

leads to the formation of scar tissue, which slowly progresses to liver disease.

Severe scarring (cirrhosis) prevents blood from flowing through the liver and

can eventually lead to liver failure. The type of hepatitis is named for the virus

that causes it; for example, hepatitis A, hepatitis B or hepatitis C. Drug or alcohol

use can also cause hepatitis. There is treatment for all types of hepatitis.

Hepatitis A

Hepatitis B

Hepatitis C

Liver Cancer

Nonalcoholic Steatohepatitis (NASH)
