Abstract

The family includes enterically transmitted small non-enveloped positive-sense RNA viruses. It includes the genera , whose members infect fish, and , whose members infect mammals and birds. Members of the genus include hepatitis E virus, which is responsible for self-limiting acute hepatitis in humans and several mammalian species; the infection may become chronic in immunocompromised individuals. Extrahepatic manifestations of Guillain–Barré syndrome, neuralgic amyotrophy, glomerulonephritis and pancreatitis have been described in humans. Avian hepatitis E virus causes hepatitis–splenomegaly syndrome in chickens. This is a summary of the International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses (ICTV) Report on the taxonomy of the , which is available at www.ictv.global/report/hepeviridae.
