The liver tissue is swollen and inflamed by hepatitis. Hepatitis can affect humans and animals in a variety of ways; some individuals and animals show no symptoms while others exhibit jaundice, which is a yellow discoloration of the skin and whites of the eyes, as well as poor appetite, vomiting, fatigue, abdominal pain, and diarrhoea. If the hepatitis clears up within six months, it is considered acute; if it persists after six months, it is considered chronic. Acute liver failure can (rarely) occur as a result of acute hepatitis, although it can also clear up on its own, develop to chronic hepatitis, or all three. The liver can become scarred (cirrhosis), fail, and develop cancer as a result of chronic hepatitis.
The hepatitis viruses hepatovirus A, B, C, D, and E are the most frequent causes of hepatitis.The cytomegalovirus, Epstein-Barr virus, and yellow fever virus are among the several viruses that can inflame the liver.
