One of those confusing cases of Hepatitis B is what it means! It is not at all uncommon for HBV to have both antigen and antibody. It means you are probably OK. However to be sure you need to get e antigen, e antibody and HBV DNA by PCR drawn. Then we will have more data. The DNA is really the key here. Good luck! DTD
