Anybody can tell me what's the plural of "hepatitis"?
There probably isn't a plural. Why would you want a plural?
Hepatitides is the plural form.
It's not a word that is part of my everyday vocabulary ... but here's an example:
United Kingdom national guideline on the management of the viral hepatitides A, B, and C 2005.
Thanks a lot!
I need it because i'm translating an article about hepatitis B and C, so if I have to speak of the two of them I need a plural form.
If your article is for a general audience, I think you would be better to avoid this plural, and say something like
these two forms of hepatitis ...
Separate names with a comma.
