‘Mysterious hepatitis’ incidents are increasing in the world: the number of cases in the USA reached 180

0 50

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in its briefing statement yesterday, stated that scientists and pediatricians across the country are working on the source of the disease and stated that the acute hepatitis incident of unknown origin reached 180 in 36 states.

“While this appears to be a large increase in patients under investigation over the past two weeks, it is important to understand that the vast majority of these are patients we consider ‘retrospective’ patients,” the CDC said of the number of incidents. Emphasizing that not all incidents were new, but mostly retrospective, it was stated that the number of incidents announced on 5 May was 109.

DEATH EVENTS DECREASE

Stating that there were no deaths due to acute hepatitis as of February 2022, CDC stated that the events requiring liver transplantation had decreased from 15 percent to 9 percent since May 5th. With the study carried out on the source of the disease, possible causes continue to be examined, including testing and excluding some viruses that commonly cause hepatitis (hepatitis A, B, C, D and E). It was emphasized that ‘Adenovirus’ (a virus that infects the respiratory tract and intestinal system) was detected in almost half of the children, and this was a valuable clue.

ATTENTION TO YELLOW ON SKIN AND EYES!

Noting that the CDC will hold an information meeting on May 19, it is important to remember that severe hepatitis in children is rare. However, we encourage parents and caregivers to be aware of the symptoms of hepatitis (especially jaundice with yellowing of the skin or eyes) and to contact their child’s health care provider on any suspicion.
