Autochthonous (locally acquired) hepatitis E is increasingly recognised in developed countries, and is thought to be a porcine zoonosis. A range of extra‐hepatic manifestations of hepatitis E infection have been described, but have never been systematically studied. 
Neurologic Disorders in Immunocompetent Patients with Autochthonous Acute Hepatitis E
Patients with acute neurologic manifestations and aminotransferase abnormalities should be screened for hepatitis E virus infection.
Hepatitis E virus in patients with decompensated chronic liver disease: a prospective UK/French study
TLDR
In developed countries, hepatitis E is a porcine zoonosis caused by hepatitis E virus (HEV) genotype 3, and causes increased mortality in patients with pre‐existing chronic liver disease (CLD). Expand
Extrahepatic manifestations of hepatitis E virus
TLDR
All published reports describing hepatitis E virus–associated extrahepatic manifestations are reviewed, including membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis with or without cryoglobulinemia and membranousglomerul onephritis. Expand
Acute hepatitis E infection as a cause of unexplained neurological symptoms
TLDR
This case describes aberrant neurology in a 35-year-old woman with a background of HEV infection, highlighting the need for increased awareness of acute hepatitis E infection as a cause of unexplained neurological illness. Expand
Beyond the Liver, Hepatitis E Can Affect the Nerves, Pancreas, and Blood Vessels. Extrahepatic Manifestations of Hepatitis E: A Comprehensive Literature Review
TLDR
This review article will discuss the extrahepatic manifestations of hepatitis E, such as Guillain-Barre syndrome, pancreatitis, and cryoglobulinemia, their clinical association with Hepatitis E, and their management. Expand
Hepatitis E virus and neurological disorders
TLDR
This work recommends testing all patients with AIDP and neuralgic amyotrophy for hepatitis E and consider testing any patient with an unexplained neurological illness and abnormal liver function tests for the virus. Expand
Mortality and morbidity of locally acquired hepatitis E in the national Scottish cohort: a multicentre retrospective study
TLDR
Hepatitis E virus is the most common acute viral hepatitis in Scotland and its burden of morbidity and mortality can be high in chronic liver disease or immunocompromised states. Expand
Steroid-Responsive Myositis Associated With Acute Hepatitis E Infection
TLDR
A case of a young woman already diagnosed with acute HEV infection who presented with a generalized body rash and weakness in all four limbs was reported, subsequently diagnosed with inflammatory myositis and treated successfully with steroids. Expand
Widespread rash as initial presentation of acute hepatitis E in a woman with well-controlled HIV
TLDR
A 45-year-old woman with well-controlled HIV presented with a widespread, polymorphic rash and transaminitis, and acute genotype 3 hepatitis E infection was confirmed and resolved without intervention. Expand

TLDR
The clinical manifestations of hepatitis E are similar to those of other types of viral hepatitis; pregnant women and chronic liver disease patients suffering from acute hepatitis E usually present with severe clinical manifestations that may develop into fulminant hepatic failure. Expand

TLDR
Patients with unexplained hepatitis should be tested for hepatitis E, whatever their age or travel history, and the source and route of infection remain uncertain, but it might be a porcine zoonosis. Expand
