Abstract

It has been established that virus B hepatitis can be transmitted by nonparenteral and parenteral means. Recent evidence suggests that the fecal oral route is not a significant mode of transmission. To further elucidate the epidemiology of this disease, it is incumbent upon every physician caring for a patient with hepatitis to attempt to determine the source and mode of transmission of the virus.
