A total of 52 million children with Viral Hepatitis virus C and B virus have been infected with HIV, while 2.1 million children are living with HIV / AIDS, according to data published by the Hepatitis C summit, which ended Friday in the Brazilian city of São Paulo. the world.
The World Health Organization (WHO) reported that 325 million people are infected with viral hepatitis in 2016, including 4 million children under the age of 19 who suffer from the C virus and 48 million under the age of 18 suffer from the B virus.
The source of the Viral Hepatitis virus C is the result of infection of three basic viruses
In most cases, the source of the Viral Hepatitis virus C is the result of infection of three basic viruses: the hepatitis A, B or C virus (ischemic hepatitis, hepatitis long incubation and hepatitis-like hepatitis). Antibodies to one of these viruses can lead to viral hepatitis, accompanied by symptoms that spread over a wide range of risks. Some of these infections accompanied by mild and virtually inconceivable symptoms, but other symptoms may lead to liver breakdown, coma and even death (if no alternative liver found(.
Ischemic hepatitis A
Ischemic hepatitis A ,is relatively mild and does not last long. But hepatitis B and hepatitis B, C or type D cause long-term symptoms and require long and continuous medical treatment.
Hepatitis D is viral hepatitis
Hepatitis D is viral hepatitis, Appears only in people who previously exposed to a type B virus. Another type of virus that is responsible for viral hepatitis is the hepatitis D virus, which is mainly common among people who visited foreign lands where multiple morbidity associated with viral infection The basis in areas where the population didn’t receive adequate vaccinations).
Methods of transmission of viral Hepatitis virus C infection from one person to another
- Contact with the faeces of a person infected with the hepatitis virus (mainly hepatitis A virus).
- Eat seafood contaminated with contaminated sewage (mainly with hepatitis A virus).
- Contact with infected blood, vaginal secretions, semen and breast milk (mainly hepatitis B virus).
- Unprotected sexual intercourse with a sick person (mainly HBV and Viral Hepatitis virus C).
- Use of used or contaminated injections (hepatitis B, C and D).
Symptoms of Viral Hepatitis virus C
as a result in,The symptoms of Viral Hepatitis virus C are multiple and relate to the cause of the disease and the degree of damage to the liver. In relatively mild cases, the disease has no symptoms or symptoms similar to those of mild flu:
- Fever (high body temperature).
- A sense of exhaustion and general fatigue.
- Nausea and vomiting.
- Discomfort and pain in the upper (right) part of the abdomen as a result of bulging and enlarged liver.
- Muscle pain.
In the most serious cases of viral hepatitis, and because the liver damaged and unable to effectively filter blood, accumulate toxic chemicals in the blood circulation causing the following symptoms:
- Yellowing of the skin and white part of the eye.
- Paul center and dark.
- Feces tend to gray.
- High fever and general feeling of illness.
Diagnosis of Viral Hepatitis virus C
During the process of diagnosing Viral Hepatitis virus C, the physician requires a full explanation of the medical history of the patient. In general, he asks questions related to:
- Drug or alcohol abuse (with a view to determining whether the source of the disease is viral or other).
- Take medications that can damage the liver tissue.
- Unprotected sexual intercourse.
- Communication with patients known to have viral hepatitis
finally,The doctor performs a comprehensive physical examination, which examines the presence of yellowing in the skin and eyes, and examines the sensitivity of the liver (an examination that is generally do by sensing the area). In order to ensure, unequivocally, that the disease is not viral hepatitis, blood tests performed and, if necessary, biopsies also extracted.
