AbstractHepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg) seroclearance is a rare event that occurs in 0.1% to 2% of patients with chronic hepatitis B per year. Patients with HBsAg seroclearance have improvement of liver biochemistry and hepatic necroinflammation. The viral load gradually decreases with time, although some patients still have detectable intrahepatic hepatitis B virus DNA, mainly in the form of covalently closed circular DNA. There is no reduction of the risk of cirrhosis-related complications and hepatocellular carcinoma if HBsAg seroclearance occurs at an older age when cirrhosis has already been established.
