Hepatitis and Other Liver Diseases

Hepatitis is a disease of the liver caused from a viral infection. Hepatitis may be caused by:

  • Blood transfusions
  • Sexual transmission
  • Contaminated needles

Hepatitis is also the name of a family of viral infections that affect the liver; the most common types include:

  • Hepatitis A
  • Hepatitis B
  • Hepatitis C

Patients who only have hepatitis are not treated at the Johns Hopkins Medicine Liver Tumor Center. However, we do treat hepatocellular carcinoma; a cancer that may be caused by hepatitis.

Learn more about hepatitis treatment at Johns Hopkins Medicine.
