Abstract

Symptoms of COVID-19 range from mild to severe with pulmonary manifestations being predominate, however, liver injury is not rare. There might be a reciprocal influence between COVID-19 and hepatic disease. While high levels of liver enzyme is associated with an increased prevalence of severe complications, search for other etiologies of hepatic disease should be not be ignored. We report a case of COVID-19 presented with acute fulminant hepatitis A (HAV) without previous history.
