Viral hepatitis is caused by many different types of viruses “such as : A , B , C , D, E “
Here is a Toon that can help you to memorize some of the differences between the types of Hepatitis
Mmmmm … today we focus on Hepatitis A & E
Here in Our toon …. we have Mr A & Miss E >>>” referring to hepatitis A & E ”
they are holding a Sign saying ” No C ” … and they make number 4 with the fingers of their free hands.
this means we have 4 “C”s that aren’t seen with Hepatits A & E :
Hepatitis A & E are always present as acute attacks , they are Never chronic diseases.
Hepatitis A & E don’t cause Cirrhosis .
there are no Carriers for Hepatitis A & E ….patients have symptoms which are mainly mild or sever only
Hepatitis A & E don’t lead to the development of cancer.
this is logic as they are not Chronic diseases & have no carriers, so the viruses don’t stay for long inside the body to develop cancer. In addition, hepatitis A & E don’t cause Liver cirrhosis. :smile:
To sum up , remember :whistle:
Cancer , Carrier , Cirrhosis & Chronic … all 4 “C“s are never associated with Hepatits A & E
