An outbreak of enterically transmitted Non A Non B (NANB) hepatitis in the Andaman Islands is reported in the present study. A total of 307 cases were reported from Diglipur and 26 surrounding villages. Interestingly as many as 45.9% of the cases were below 15 years of age. Out of the 78 patients serologically tested, none had current HBV infection and only 5 had evidence of HAV infection. Epidemiological and serological findings indicate the NANB etiology of this outbreak.
