Transmission af hepatitis E i Danmark

Forskningsoutput: TidskriftsbidragArtikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift

Abstract

A case of acute hepatitis due to hepatitis E virus genotype 3 was diagnosed by serology and genomic sequencing. Phylogenetic analysis demonstrated a strain identical to one isolated from a Swedish pig, which supports the hypothesis that swine serves as reservoirs for HEV infection. The patient did not have any recent travel history, had experienced no contact with animals and the origin of the infection remained unknown. We emphasize that health personnel should be aware of acute hepatitis E even among patients without a travel history.
