Hepatitis Viral en Chile: actualización al 2006

En las últimas décadas se han producido importantes cambios epidemiológicos, respecto de la incidencia y prevalencia de los distintos tipos de hepatitis viral en nuestro país. De alguna manera estos cambios podrían entenderse como índices de desarrollo, cuando se evalúan las hepatitis que se transmiten enteralmente (virus A y E), infecciones sin frontera en relación a la transmisión por contacto sexual (virus B), desafíos y estrategias acerca del impacto de las transfusiones hace tres décadas (virus C) y otras formas de transmisión y/o agentes no identificados (virus noA-E)

Hepatitis B en niños

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.
