Were you looking for information about Hepatitis C? Hepititis C is a common misspelling of hepatitis C.
Hepatitis C is an inflammation of the liver that is caused by a virus. The disease can be either acute or chronic; the body can completely kill the virus in acute hepatitis C, but people with the chronic condition end up having long-term liver infections. Transmission occurs most frequently when a person comes in contact with infected blood, usually from sharing needles for tattoos, body piercings, or drugs. If treatment for hepatitis C is recommended, it usually involves medications.
