Acute Hepatitis A
This answer is incorrect. Anti-hepatitis A IgM is almost always detectable at the onset of symptoms. In the rare case in which the initial test is negative but a strong clinical suspicion for hepatitis A remains, a repeat test is recommended in 1 to 2 weeks. Testing of stool or serum for HAV using PCR-based techniques is not routinely performed for diagnostic purposes.
