Hepatitis A Symptoms

The yellowing of skin and eyes happens to approximately a fifth of people who display symptoms of hepatitis. This condition is also familiar to many people under its medical term – jaundice. In adults, jaundice can be much more severe. It might indicate the presence of a scarring of the liver (the medical term for this is cirrhosis) that is caused when hepatitis is not treated effectively, or not diagnosed at an early enough stage.
