Abstract:

In 6-19 months after the infection with epidemic hepatitis, 19 of 36 children had some residual phenomenan. A lower protrombin indicator was noted in 13 children of them 5 had the hypoprotrombin as the only symptom. This seems to indicate the stable and lenghty disruption of the protrombin producing function of the liver, after infection by epidemic hepatitis. In view of all the above, it is recommended that the children recovering from epidemic hepatitis be under outpatient observation for a regulated period.
