Another rare form of hepatitis, hep G (HGV) is a chronic hepatic infection. About 27% of people who are diagnosed with hep G have a coinfection of hep C. This type of virus is also transmitted through bodily fluid contact, typically from exposure to blood or through sexual contact.
There are no reported symptoms of hep G, so many people may be unaware of their infection. Not much is known about this disease and there are currently no treatments. However, this virus does not seem to cause severe damage to the liver like other types of hepatitis.
