Transfusion-transmitted hepatitis E in a misleading context of autoimmunity and drug-induced toxicity. Haim-Boukobza, S., Ferey, M. P., Vetillard, A. L., Jeblaoui, A., Pelissier, E., Pelletier, G., Teillet, L., & Roque-Afonso, A. M. J Hepatol, 57(6):1374–8, December, 2012.

Hepatitis E is currently diagnosed after all other causes of hepatitis have been excluded. Moreover, HEV testing is not performed to prevent blood transmission in developed countries. We report here on the case of a patient with acute hepatitis while receiving potentially hepatotoxic medications for autoimmune disorders, with low-level autoimmune markers and negative "standard" viral markers; it was finally determined that he was suffering from transfusion-transmitted hepatitis E.
