Abstract
Hepatitis is an aggravation of the liver, the condition can be self-restricted (intense) and can advance to liver cirrhosis (persistent). Infections with the hepatitis A infection (HAV), hepatitis B (HBV) and/or the hepatitis C infection (HCV) are open wellbeing issues, which are profoundly endemic within the sub-Saharan Africa nations where Nigeria is found. The research was carried out to investigate the Prevalence of HAV, HBV and HCV among children with suspected cases of malaria at general hospital Mahuta, Kebbi State Nigeria. In this cross-sectional research facility-based study, One hundred blood specimens were aseptically collected from children suspected of malaria cases attending general hospital Mahuta. Participants were screened for against-HAV, hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg) and anti-HCV antibodies with standard methods. Participants’ information were gotten from suitable specialists and concerned relatives. One hundred (100) blood samples were screened for hepatitis A, B and C, out of which 0% speak to hepatitis A infection (HAV) positive, 12% found to be seropositive for hepatitis B surface antigen, (HbsAg) whereas 2% found to be seropositive for hepatitis C infection (HCV). The sex-related predominance of 9% in males and 3% in females was gotten for HBV, whereas HCV had 1.0% for males and 1.0% for females. Hepatitis A, B and C can affect any age group once exposed to the hepatitis virus via direct or indirect contact. Therefore, its recommend that patients presenting with malaria symptoms be made to undergo hepatitis viruses screening to detect the disease's early presence if any.

Key words: HAV, HBV, HCV, Children, Coinfection and Malaria
