MAINARDI, Victoria et al. First case of Hepatitis E Virus- induced acute liver failure in Uruguay. Arch. Med Int [online]. 2014, vol.36, n. 3, pp.111-114. ISSN 0250-3816.

Abstract: Hepatitis E Virus (HEV) typically causes an acute and self-limiting infection in immune-competent individuals, though acute liver failure is described in some settings (pregnancy, chronic liver disease). Chronic hepatitis has been described in immunosuppressed patients. Fourteen autochthonous cases of self-limiting acute hepatitis for HEV were reported in Uruguay. The first case of acute liver failure for HEV is described in the present article.

Keywords : Hepatitis E Virus; Acute Liver Failure.
