Typical symptoms of hepatitis A are fatigue, fever, loss of appetite, nausea, right-sided abdominal pain, dark-colored urine, clay-colored feces, and jaundice. In children less than six years old, 70% have no symptoms and those with symptoms rarely have jaundice.

Usually patients recover within 2 months, but 10% to 15% require up to 6 months for full recovery.
