Core Tip Butchers and other personnel of slaughterhouse belong to a high-risk occupation and are at increased risk of transmissible diseases. This group of patients presenting to the healthcare providers with hepatitis require extensive work up to find the causative agent. In this review article, we have searched a list of organisms associated with hepatitis in slaughterhouse workers. We have also proposed an algorithm for the evaluation and management of hepatitis in these workers. It is critical to work up hepatitis in these infective patients because they might be a source of transmissible diseases to their colleagues, family members and consumers.
