Hepatitis is a serious liver condition, usually caused by a virus. In some rare cases, hepatitis can also be caused by certain medications. Hepatitis causes swelling (inflammation) of the liver, and can cause scarring, which may damage the liver and prevent it from functioning normally. There are five major strains of viral hepatitis, each one causing inflammation of the liver. They can vary in severity and treatability. The five kinds of hepatitis are type A, B, C, D and E. It is possible to have more than one strain of hepatitis at once.
