Hep B virus remains in the blood lifelong.The patient may not experience symptoms till much later.Its a virus transmitted by sexual contact,and blood products,infected needles etc.So caution must be taken regarding that.Later pt may experience liver dysfunction etc,jaundice etc.Treatment is by supportive medication only.
