This is mostly an acute, self limiting infection caused by Hepatitis E virus. After an incubation period ranging from 15 to 60 days, HEV-infected patients develop symptoms of hepatitis with appearance of anti-HEV IgM antibody in serum, followed by anti-HEV IgG after a few days. Anti-HEV IgM remains in serum for up to 6 months after onset of symptoms, while anti-HEV IgG usually persists for many years after infection.
