TO THE EDITOR:
The Update in Hepatology (1) was very informative, but it made almost no mention of hepatitis E. Hepatitis E is very uncommon in the United States, but astute physicians would have liked to read a line or two about hepatitis E. American travelers may be exposed to this virus. More important, an effective vaccine for hepatitis E, which affects thousands of people, may soon be available (2, 3).
