Hepatitis B Directory

Hepatitis B is caused by the hepatitis B virus, which is passed through infected blood and bodily fluids. Chronic hepatitis B infection often has no symptoms but can lead to liver damage and failure. The virus can be passed by sharing needles, razors, or toothbrushes; having sex without a condom; or getting tattoos. A mother who has the virus can pass it to her baby during delivery. A blood test is used to diagnose hepatitis B; a liver biopsy may be necessary to check for liver damage. Follow the links below to find WebMD's comprehensive coverage about how hepatitis B is contracted, its symptoms, how to treat it, and much more.
