Hepatitis A - fact sheet
Hepatitis A is also known as "yellow jaundice" or catarrhal jaundice of childhood. It is a relatively common disease (has become less common in the UK) and is caused by a virus. About half the people in this country have been infected at some time before the age of 40 years. it is a disease which is transmitted as a result of poor hygiene or by eating contaminated food. Hepatitis A is a NOTIFIABLE disease. This means that doctors have a legal duty to inform the Consultant in Communicable Disease Control of suspected cases.

The illness.

Fever, malaise, loss of appetite, abdominal discomfort followed within a few days by jaundice, dark urine and pale stools. The disease varies in clinical severity and only rarely presents as a severely disabling disease lasting several months. It is not unusual – especially in children – for the disease to occur without any signs or symptoms, so that it is only never diagnosed retrospectively by a blood test. This makes the disease hard to control.
