Hepatitis is caused by HSV which is (IMMSMR) HSV type II or in slang language it's called HBV. This virus cause Hepatocellular carcinoma...

PS: what I mean above is for the term of Hepatitis B dissease..

@Dr. Stein
can Leukemia (those 4 types above) caused by infectious agents?? because a far as I remember, those 4 types are inherited as genetic dissease cause by chromosome aberation..

Yes, as much as I know a person can be a carrier. But that does not mean none of the symptoms are seen. ( I mean it is not like being carrier of a genetic disease.) Carriers usually do not have the symptoms, but soomer or later symptoms start.
This is what I've heard from a doctor.

Ahhh...talking about hepatitis, I'm really sorry for my previous post. I made a mistake and now, I'll try to make a correction for it.
Actually hepatitis is caused by a virus from family Hepadnaviridae, genus Orthohepadnavirus. This virus cause dissease by creating carcinoma hepatocellular.

Actually vic, it really depends on the type of hepatits. I don't know taxonomy of viri, but you can get hepatitis A from unwashed food when you can only get hepatitis B if you come into contact with an infected person's fluids. Hepatitis D is not even caused by a virus, it caused by a viroid, located in the capsid of the hepatitis B virus
