Clinical Significance

Anti-HAV test is primarily used to determine the cause of acute hepatitis or to identify the type of hepatitis virus causing an infection. Individuals produce IgM antibodies on exposure to HAV either naturally or due to vaccination. Testing for the presence of IgM antibodies against hepatitis A virus is performed when the patient shows symptoms of hepatitis such as fever, fatigue, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, dark urine and/or pale colored stool, joint pain, jaundice.
