hbv and ebv
Mar 18, 2001
dear dr. dieterich,
can a person with hbv and ebv develop liver complications? Thanks.
Response from Dr. Dieterich
Epstein Barr virus during the acute event can cause elevations of liver enzymes but not chronically. Hepatitis B can of course cause long term liver damage, cirrhosis and liver cancer if not treated. DTD
