Most of the times treatment is directed toward symptoms, most hep a infections are self limited, but in some cases the infection can be over whelming and can cause liver failure and death, hep a is transmitted through fecal oral route, it can be avoided by following good hygiene when it comes to food handling and food consumption, vaccination can decrease the risk of infection.
