Urticaria and Hepatitis
Jun 17, 2003

I am just wondering, what is the link between urticaria and hepatitis B? I've read somewhere it says amongst the causes of urticaria (besides allergy, temperature etc) hepatitis is in the list. What are the mechanism of hepatitis causing hypersensitivity type I?

Response from Dr. Dieterich

It is usually casused by HBV because of the large antigen excess and lots of antigen antibody complexes floating about. DTD

GB Virus-C Co-Infection
I have a question, Dr. Dieterich
