What is hepatitis l.jpg
What is Hepatitis? Karachi?

  • Hepatitis (plural hepatitides) implies injury to liver characterized by presence of inflammatorycells in the liver tissue. The condition can be self limiting, healing on its own or can progress to scarring of liver.

  • Acute hepatitis is when it lasts less than 6 months and chronic hepatitis is when it persists longer.

  • A group of viruses known as the hepatitis viruses cause most liver damages worldwide.

  • Hepatitis can also be due to toxins (notably alcohol), other infections or from autoimmune process. It may run a subclinical course when the affected person may not feel ill.

  • The patient becomes unwell and symptomatic when the disease impairs liver functions that include among other things, screening of harmful substances, regulation of blood composition and production of bile to help digestion.
