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.
