An epidemic of enterically transmitted non-A, non-B hepatitis occurred at a college in Sargodha, Pakistan in early 1987. There were 133 clinical cases, an attack rate of approximately 20%. Though the disease was relatively mild, all clinical cases required hospitalization and prolonged convalescence. Nearly all cases were associated with a single water source. The epidemic ended when the water supply was improved. This is the 4th described epidemic of non-A, non-B hepatitis in Pakistan.
