Increase in acute hepatitis (liver inflammation) cases in children
Since January 2022 there has been an increase in the number of children with acute (sudden onset) hepatitis of unknown cause in the UK. Most of these children are aged under 10 years.

Public Health England have shared a new leaflet explaining the current situation and what to look out for.
