Table 3 Correlation between HAV RNA positivity with respect to duration of jaundice

From: Immunological and molecular epidemiological characteristics of acute and fulminant viral hepatitis A

Duration of Jaundice HAV RNA AVHa
(n = 62)
HAV RNA FHFb
(n = 10)
0-7 days 38/51(74.5%) 07/07 (100%)
7-14 days 18/29 (62.0%) 03/03 (100%)
1-2 months 05/11 (45.4%) --
5 months 01/03 (33.3%) --
  1. aAVH = Acute viral hepatitis; bFHF = Fulminant hepatic failure
  2. There was significant difference (p < 0.05) between final positivity of acute and fulminant hepatitis A.
