  1. Risk factors for acute parenterally transmitted viral hepatitis : a 20-year study.

    Article - En anglais

    In order to verify the relative role of each single risk factor during a long period of observation, and to compare the frequency of risk factors in parenterally and non-parenterally transmitted acute viral hepatitis, we studied 1,251 patients admitted to our Department from 1971 to 1991.

    Acute hepatitis A cases were considered non-parenterally transmitted, whereas B, C, NANB and Delta hepatitis were grouped together as parenterally transmitted.

    The two groups were compared for age, sex and the following risk factors: surgical procedures, transfusion, dental procedures, intravenous drug addiction, infected partner, infected relative and hospital admission.

    There were 243 non-parenterally transmitted and 1,008 parenterally transmitted cases.
