Hepatitis A
Jan 24, 2000

About 3 weeks ago I began having symptoms of flu and had blood test that confirmed that I had Hepatitis A, I spent 3 days in hospital on IV's My question now is my lymph nodes in my neck and my groin area are enlarged and causing severe headaches. Is this a result of having the HAV. Thank You for all your help

Response from Dr. Feinberg

Enlarged lymph nodes are not typical of Hepatitis A. You should be evaluated for a different problem if these persist.

Enlarged Liver and Abnormal Liver Functions
Acute Hepatic Failure complicated with AIDS
