Response from Dr. McGovern

It looks like he cleared his hepatitis C but his HBV is active again. I would consider treatment since he has elevated liver function tests. He will want to discuss whether he should get a liver biopsy with his physician. I can't tell if he is e antigen negative because you have listed a negative and a positive but haven't told me which is his result. This will help determine his length of treatment. If he is positive, you will treat for six months after seroconversion (loss of e antigen and gain of antibody). If he is negative, he will need indefinite treatment.

There are many new medications to discuss with his doctor including entecavir.
