Hi,

By what you say I feel that this could be acute viral hepatitis-A or it could be at typhoid related enteric hepatitis.I suggest you discuss these possibilities with the pediatrician there.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Sumanth Amperayani, Pediatrician, Pulmonology
