a. Anicteric Hepatitis. This is a minor flu-like illness without jaundice. It may
be only a clinical manifestation of acute hepatitis, especially in children.

b. Recrudescent Hepatitis. This type of hepatitis occurs in a small number of
hepatitis patients during the recovery phase of their illness. Generally, patients recover
well from recrudescent hepatitis. Rarely, the patient develops chronic hepatitis
afterward.

c. Fulminant Hepatitis. This type of hepatitis is a rare syndrome usually seen
in type B hepatitis, NANB hepatitis, or drug injury hepatitis. The patient experiences
rapid clinical deterioration. Adults do not usually survive despite heroic measures.
Children have a better chance for survival. Meticulous nursing care and careful
management of specific complications provide the best hope for recovery. Remarkably,
those who do survive this disease recover completely. Cases of fulminant hepatitis
have been documented in Korea.
