Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and health departments around the country are monitoring reports of cases of children with hepatitis of unknown cause; investigators are examining a possible relationship to adenovirus. CDC has put out a call for cases of children <10 years old with hepatitis of unknown cause since October 2021. 

As of September 1, 2022, CDPHE has reported 27 cases that meet these criteria to CDC. Numbers will be updated on the first Thursday of each month.

Case numbers are listed below according to the month in which patients first presented with liver disease. Case counts for all time periods may change as CDPHE identifies more patients.
