This is an important symptom in infectious diseases, and hepatitis is not the exception. However, fever symptoms in hepatitis do not reach very high temperatures. In most cases, it is a low-grade fever perceived by the patient but not necessarily alarming. Still, it should alert the patient that there’s something wrong, especially in combination with abdominal pain and general malaise, which is common in acute hepatitis. Note that patients with acute hepatitis have a fever but do not always have jaundice. In chronic stages, patients have jaundice, but not always fever. Thus, do not expect to check all of the symptoms in this list to go to your doctor.
