Were you looking for information about Hepatitis C? Hepatits C is a common misspelling of hepatitis C.
Hepatitis C is an infectious disease caused by the hepatitis C virus. It is transmitted through infected blood, such as from sharing needles for tattoos, body piercings, or drugs. The condition causes inflammation of the liver and is separated into two different types: acute and chronic. The body is able to completely kill the virus in acute hepatitis C, but chronic hepatitis C is a condition that can lead to more and more liver damage over time.
