In outbreaks of type A hepatitis in Los Angeles, USA, and Rosario, Argentina, virus particles were isolated from faces. The geographically diverse strains were identical in appearance and serological reactivity. They differed only in buoyant density, but other workers have also obtained inconsistent results in estimating this. It is concluded that the virus strains in the two epidemics were identical.
