Introduction: Acute hepatitis has several causes. Transfusion of non-infected blood to the virus and avoidance of undesirable social contacts have reduced the prevalence of hepatitis B and C transmission. Improved socioeconomic status and access to healthy food and water have also reduced the prevalence of hepatitis E and A. The transition from Hyper Endimicity to Intermediate or Low Endimicity has increased the incidence of acute Hepatitis A especially in adults. The aim of this study was to determine the epidemiological status of patients with acute liver hepatitis referred to the Shahid Sadoughi Hospital of Yazd from 2015 to 2018
Methods: This cross-sectional study was performed on the patients referring to the gastrointestinal clinic of Shahid Sadoughi Hospital from 2015 to 2018. The sampling method was that after rule out chronic liver disease according to medical history and patient lab data, the patients imported to the category of acute liver disease. SPSS Inc, Chicago, IL; version 16 was used to determine the prevalence of each type of acute hepatitis.
 Results: 23 patients were diagnosed with acute hepatitis, 14 were male and 9 were female. Hepatitis A was found in 15 patients, 2 patients had acute hepatitis B, 2 patients had autoimmune hepatitis, and 4 patients had other causes for hepatitis.
Conclusion: 65% of patients in this study had acute hepatitis A. Therefore, acute hepatitis A is one of the important factors in the development of acute liver disease study and is therefore one of the important factors in the development of acute liver disease.
