CDC asks doctors to keep extra eye out for hepatitis in kids

The Centers for Disease Control is asking physicians to be on the lookout for severe cases of hepatitis in children.

Hepatitis refers to inflammation of the liver, a condition that can result in diarrhea, abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting. Several children have become so ill they needed a liver transplant.

No deaths have been reported. No cause or common exposures have been found.
