Abstract

Viral hepatitis is one of the most common liver disorders and is a major public health problem occurring in almost all areas of the world. Occurrence of hepatitis B and C can lead to complications due to liver dysfunction, immune complex disorders, chronic liver failure, and certain extra hepatic manifestations that can seriously affect the patient's quality of life. Awareness and recognition of these oral manifestations are of particular importance for the oral physician to facilitate early diagnosis and treatment and to take suitable measures to prevent transmission of infection.
