Hepatitis A can not be distinguished from other types of viral hepatitis on the basis of clinical or epidemiologic features alone. Serologic testing is required to confirm the diagnosis. Electron microscopy: Hepatitis A Virus is present in stools before the onset of clinical symptoms and can be demonstrated by electron microscopy.

Chronic viral hepatitis, liver cirrhosis and primary liver cancer are the main clinical outcomes of these phenomena of viral persistence, which respond to two main mechanisms: induction of immune tolerance in the host, and emergence and selection of viral mutants that are able to escape the immune by:

Viral Hepatitis. Viral hepatitis is an inflammatory diseased state of the liver caused by various viruses, namely hepatitis A (HAV), HBV, HCV, hepatitis D, and hepatitis E. HAV, HBV, and HCV are the more common types of viral hepatitis found in the US population [26]. These viruses can spread through food, water, infected blood, and bodily fluids. Viral hepatitis and related liver cancer remains a global health burden, despite the successful development of antiviral treatment and targeted molecular anti-cancer therapy. The unsolved issues include, but are not limited to, the following. Chronic hepatitis D is the most severe form of viral hepatitis with the highest risk to develop cirrhosis and liver cancer. Current treatment is based on pegylated-interferon-alpha which rarely controls HDV infection and is complicated by serious side effects.   Hepatitis A Disease. The clinical course of acute hepatitis can be divided into different phases according to the clinical manifestations and time course of .
