Laboratory Testing for Hepatitis A and E

Geographic Distribution of Hepatitis E

Slide 15

September 2008

Next I’m going to discuss Hepatitis E as it is very similar in transmission modes and presentation to acute Hepatitis A. You can see from this geographic distribution of Hepatitis A that the cases are mainly found in the developing countries near the tropical and sub-tropical areas of the world. Outbreaks of Hepatitis E account for more than 25% of the sporadic non-A, non-B, and non-C acute hepatitis in these regions.
