Hep B Surface Antibody Reactive; Surface Antigen Positive
May 6, 2012

I had a blood test March 2012 with Reactive result for Hepatitis B Surface Antibody. Had another blood test April 2012 and turned out that I am Hepatitis B Surface Antigen Positive.. What is good and bad in my case? Im really worried when the doctor told me Im Hep. B Positive..

Response from Dr. McGovern

Your results don't make sense to me because it is rare to see both of those tests reactive.

I would recheck the entire panel at the same time. HBsAg, HBcore antibody, HB surface antibody and liver function tests.
