Hepatitis E Information

Hepatitis E, a liver disease most often seen in young-to-middle-aged adults, is caused by an infection with the hepatitis E virus. Transmission occurs when someone puts something in his or her mouth that has been contaminated with the stool of an infected person.
 
Common symptoms of hepatitis E include abdominal pain, feeling very tired, and not feeling very hungry. In many cases, these symptoms appear abruptly and go away within a couple of weeks. Treatment is focused on supportive care, since there is no medication that can kill the hepatitis E virus.
