Hepatitis A is a disease of the liver caused by the hepatitis A virus (HAV). The illness is characterized by a sudden onset of fever, tiredness, nausea, loss of appetite, and abdominal discomfort, followed in several days by jaundice (yellowing of the skin and eyes). 

On average, hepatitis A symptoms appear 28 days (with a range of 15–50 days) following exposure to the virus. Symptoms usually last less than 2 months, although a small number of individuals may remain ill for as long as 6 months. Adults are more likely to have symptoms than children, and some infected individuals may not have any signs or symptoms of the illness.
