Abstract
Dual infection with Hepatitis A and E has been reported. Its co-existence with Glucose 6-Phosphate Dehydrogenase (G6PD) deficiency is rare, especially in females. We present an 8 years old female child with Hepatitis A and E dual infection with severe anemia due to intravascular hemolysis due to G6PD deficiency. She responded to conservative treatment and packed red blood cells (PRBC) transfusion.
