Response from Dr. Rodriguez-Torres

Hepatitis A is contracted by ingesting orally food or water with the virus.It is always cleared,no chronic hep A ,and frequently asymptomatic.It is not trasmitted by sex or blood.IGG positive antibody means that the patient was infected,the virus was cleared and he cannot be reinfected by this virus.
