We report a case of 54-year-old female, who was diagnosed with acute viral hepatitis E with uncomplicated anicteric course of the infection. The patient did not have a specific travel history to endemic areas and the infection has been acquired in the Czech Republic. The epidemiologic history was remarkable only because she consumed undercooked pork meat. A differential diagnostic process of acute viral hepatitis in our conditions as well as problems of acute viral hepatitis E as an autochtonous infection in Western and Central Europe are discussed.
