In brief: Hepatitis 'types'
Hepatitis means inflammation of the liver. This can be due to viruses (hepatitis a, b, c, d or e; epstein-barr, CMV etc) or fat or alcohol or iron or copper deposition or other 'storage diseases' or medications or autoimmune diseases or genetic causes or combinations etc.
So - a thorough workup is usually indicated. If left untreated hepatitis from any cause has the potential for complications.
