AbstractRecent studies from Taiwan reported an increased prevalence of hepatitis D virus (HDV) superinfection as well as a spread of HDV infection to non-drug abusers. We examined the current prevalence of HDV superinfection in Hong Kong by testing sera from a large cohort of patients with acute and chronic hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection, collected between January 1988 and December 1990, for IgG antibody to HDV (anti-HDV). Anti-HDV was detected in 13 (93%) of 14 parenteral drug abusers who had HBV-related chronic liver disease. However, anti-HDV was detected in only one (0. 15%) of 664 non-drug abusers who had chronic HBV infection and none of 31% patients with acute hepatitis B. We concluded that HDV superinfection remains a rare occurrence in non-drug abusers in Hong Kong.
