What is the treatment of hepatitis E (HEV)?
Q: I was suffering from hepatitis for the last 3 weeks. The reports were negative for hepatitis A virus (HAV), hepatitis B virus (HBV) and hepatitis C virus (HCV). The doctor sugested that it may be hepatitis E virus (HEV). Is there any medicine for HEV? Is it chronic?
A:Hepatitis E infection is self limited and does not require any treatment. HEV infection does not become chronic.
