hepatitis from other viruses
Jan 31, 2002

Which other viruses might cause Hepatitis besides Hep A, B, C, D, etc...? CMV, EBV, and mono also?

Response from Dr. Fried

Hepatitis viruses A, B, C, D, and E all cause disease by primarily attacking the liver causing symptoms of hepatitis. The other viruses you mention CMV,EBV, Herpes, and various others may cause hepatitis, although usually as a secondary event. The liver is not the primary target.

pls answer
