Dr. Aravind S, Dr. Sulthan Raslin Salih, Dr. Muhammed Shareef Thenath, Dr. Rakesh T. R., Th Bhimo Singh


Abstract: Introduction Hepatitis E is a form of viral hepatitis caused by Hepatitis E virus. Hepatitis E virus (HEV) is a single-stranded RNA virus in the Hepeviridae family with five genotypes. Until recently hepatitis E was considered as an acute self-limiting disease. Reports of chronic HEV infection have been limited to immunosuppressed patients who are human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) -positive, have hematological malignancies, or are solid-organ transplant recipients. Case Report We report a case of hepatitis E causing chronic liver disease in a 25 year old immunocompetent male. Disease presented with fever and jaundice with a travel history to endemic region. Conclusion. This case highlights the importance of suspecting chronic HEV infection in patients with unexplained chronic hepatitis and liver cirrhosis even in an immunocompetent patient.
