Hepatitis B en niños

18 junio, 2010 at 21:37 Deja un comentario

One third of the world’s population has been infected by the hepatitis B virus (HBV), causing an enormous worldwide burden of chronic hepatitis, cirrhosis, and hepatocellular carcinoma. Although the virus can infect people of any age, those who are infected perinatally or as children are at greatest risk for developing the potentially fatal complications of the infection. Approval of the hepatitis B vaccine in 1982 has been the most important development in the clinical approach to this virus, changing the major goal from treatment to prevention. In this article, we review the nature of the virus, its epidemiology, serologic markers of disease, clinical manifestations of infection, the prevention of transmission, and current treatments.
