Abstract

We describe several atypical serological profiles of hepatitis B virus infection (HBV), which can arise difficulties in diagnostic and classification of the infection stage. Its knowledge is important in establishing a more accurate strategy of the screening of blood donors and candidates for vaccination. On the other hand, vaccination may be useful in interpretation of the serological profile. We also discuss the role of HBV mutants in this context.
