Hepatitis A infection occurs throughout the world. Symptomatic hepatitis occurs in 30 percent of infected children younger than 6 years. Epstein-Barr virus[EBV] infections are common in early childhood  and causes infectious mononucleosis in young adolescents. Primary EBV infection presentation as isolated hepatitis without IM (Infectious mononucleosis) syndrome is very rare. In tropical countries coinfections are common.
