SUAREZ QUINTERO, Carmen Yanette. Most frequently asked questions about pregnancy and hepatitis B. Rev Col Gastroenterol [online]. 2011, vol.26, n.3, pp.207-210. ISSN 0120-9957.

Currently there are an estimated 350 million people in the world who have chronic hepatitis B infections. In areas where the disease is endemic such as Asia, Sub-Saharan Africa and the Amazon region, the infection is most often acquired in the prenatal period or in early childhood. This is in turn related to the high prevalence of Hepatitis B e-Antigen (HBeAg) (40% to 50%) found among women of reproductive age (1-4).

Keywords : Pregnancy; hepatitis B; transmission.
