In brief: Hepatitis A and B
Hepatitis a and b virus infections show the same symptoms and similar liver damage.
Hep a infection is a more acute illness with shorter duration while infection from the b tends to be more chronic lasting months and years. In addition, hep b infection carries a risk of cancer complications. Hep a is contracted from eating contaminated foods; hep b from sex and blood transfusions.
