Abstract

We have studied three patients with chronic HBV infection who had a superimposed bout of type A hepatitis. The patients recovered uneventfully without observing a change in their clinical course afterwards. In one patient we observed transient disappearance of DNA polymerase during type A hepatitis; we have postulated that this is probably related to hepatic necrosis.
