This is a review on the updated terminology of chronic hepatitis, a topic that has gained much popularity in the current literature of gastroenterology. The aim of this review is to familiarize readers with its use and to discourage the old terminology. The new terminology of chronic hepatitis takes into consideration etiology, severity (grade) and degree of chronicity measured by fibrosis (stage). The use of the new terminology would standardize our diagnosis with the aim of standardizing therapeutic modalities for the purpose of reproducibility of results.
