Recurrent Hepatitis B and D Virus Infection in a Liver Transplant Recipient.


:Hepatitis B virus (HBV) and hepatitis delta virus (HDV) co-infections progress rapidly and lead to cirrhosis. In Japan, the prevalence of HBV and HDV co-infected patients is low. Therefore, there are few reports of patients with HBV and HDV co-infection having undergone liver transplantation. Herein, we report a rare case of recurrence of HBV and HDV in a 41-year-old man who underwent living donor liver transplantation 4 years prior.
