A Preliminary Study to Assess the Clinical – Epidemiological Profile of Acute Viral Hepatitis in Indian Subcontinent

Acute viral hepatitis (AVH) is a major public health problem and is an important cause of morbidity and mortality in India. A study to examine the clinical – epidemiological profile of acute viral hepatitis was carried in Aligarh, Uttar Pradesh. It was found that in a total of 90 serologically positive acute viral hepatitis patients, Hepatitis E was the most prevalent and with most fatalities in pregnant women. Hepatitis B had the most fulminant course followed by hepatitis E. The disease was statistically insignificantly distributed among different age groups, sex and residency rural or urban. The individual courses of the different types of acute viral hepatitis were thereby studied and discussed.
