Hepatitis is one of several viruses that can cause inflammation of the liver.
Hepatitis B is spread through the blood or sexual fluids (vaginal fluids or semen). It is also transmitted from mother to baby during birth.
Hepatitis C infection involves an initial acute phase of infection that may not be noticeable, because in most cases people do not feel sick.
