Is it necessary to delay antiviral therapy for 3-6 months to anticipate HBeAg seroconversion in patients with HBeAg-positive chronic hepatitis B in endemic areas of HBV genotype C? Clin Mol Hepatol 2014;20(4):355-360.

Figure 2. Clinical course of a 62-year-old male patient with HBeAg-positive CHB who received liver transplantation because of acute-on-chronic liver failure. This patient was followed at 6 months interval without any antiviral therapy before week 0, when serum ALT, bilirubin and HBV DNA levels were 55 IU/L, 0.6 mg/dL and 3.1×108 IU/mL, respectively. At 12 weeks, those levels increased to 282 IU/L, 0.8 mg/dL and 2.8×109 IU/mL, respectively. The patient was requested to be followed without antiviral therapy even though ALT level was elevated more than 2 times the ULN. At 14 weeks, serum ALT level was 314 IU/L and bilirubin level was 0.7 mg/d. At 16 weeks, the patients visited the emergency room early because of severe anorexia and nausea. Serum ALT, bilirubin and HBV DNA levels were 2,039 IU/L, 19 mg/dL, 3.85×108 IU/mL, respectively. Entecavir was introduced immediately. At 18 weeks, the serum bilirubin level increased to 35.3 mg/dL and hepatic encephalopathy developed in this patient. The patient received emergent liver transplantation and recovered completely.

There was an error in the Table 3. "HCV RNA at baseline ≥ 8×105 IU/mL" should have been "HCV RNA at baseline < 8×105 IU/mL".
