“Hepatitis” just means inflammation of the liver. Inflammation is a natural reaction of the body to an injury or an infection. For example, hepatitis can be caused by an infection like with the hepatitis C virus, or by drinking too much alcohol. Some medicines can also cause hepatitis.

When hepatitis is caused by a virus, it’s called viral hepatitis.

The viruses that cause hepatitis include the hepatitis A, B, C, D and E viruses.
