>>CDC Continues Investigation Into Mysterious Hepatitis Outbreak
(Undated) -- The CDC is continuing to investigate what's causing unexplained cases of pediatric hepatitis detected in the U.S. The health agency says there's been 180 reported cases across 36 states and territories over the past seven months and six deaths. Most cases were detected retrospectively and most children have since recovered. Health officials say a possible link to adenovirus remains the leading hypothesis behind the cause of the hepatitis cases.
