Hepatitis is characterized by inflammation of cells in the liver and is most commonly caused by a specific group of viruses (hepatitis viruses). The condition may also be attributed to other infections, toxins such as drugs and alcohol, trauma to the liver, or a process of destruction of tissues when the body fails to recognize them as its own (autoimmunity). The condition may last less than six months (acute) or persist longer than six months (chronic), heal on its own (self limiting) or progress to scarring of liver tissues. Anyone with a recent history of acute hepatitis is at risk of developing chronic hepatitis.
