The disease is most often not burdened with symptoms therefore the diagnosis is usually made different, for example, “badly curable chronic gastritis”. If symptoms nevertheless are shown, it is possible to suspect a liver disease:
• elevated body temperature;
• pressing pain in subcostal area;
• possible yellowness of cutaneous covering and eye scleras;
• dark urine and feces discoloration;
• Sometimes observed skin itch.
Most often yellowness appears if infection occurred with several viruses at the same time (“C” and “G”). The main feature of the hepatitis “G” is a total absence of any visible manifestations in organs which suffer usually at infection with hepatitis (emergence of vascular spiders, splenomegaly and so forth).
The period of virus development amounts one month. There are three forms of disease: asymptomatic, classical and fulminant.
• At an asymptomatic form (the most frequent option) – symptoms of the disease are absent; the person in this case becomes a potential virus carrier, it is possible to reveal the virus only having made a blood test;
• The classical form of the disease proves gradual rise of body temperature, accruing changes of blood and emergence of skin yellowness of (not always);
• The third type of the disease – fulminant, happens only in case of association of virus “G” and viruses “C” or “B”, and is marked by a fast yellowing of a skin, strong intoxication which is shown by high temperature, weakness, drowsiness, vomiting and significant changes of laboratory blood tests.
