Abstract:

 
Lifrarbólga E er veirusjúkdómur sem berst yfirleitt með menguðu vatni og gengur oftast yfir án sértækra inngripa. Hann er algengur á Indlandi og hefur valdið faröldrum, til að mynda í Asíu, Afríku og Mexíkó, en er sjaldséður á Íslandi. Hér er lýst tveimur tilfellum lifrarbólgu E sem greindust á Íslandi á síðasta ári. Hepatitis E is a viral disease that is usually transmitted through contaminated drinking water and most often causes a self-limiting infection that does not require specific treatment. It is common in India and has caused outbreaks in Asia, Africa and Mexico but has very rarely been diagnosed in Iceland. We describe two cases of hepatitis E diagnosed in Iceland in the last year.
