Abstract: 

Despite the availability of an effective vaccine, Hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection still remains a foremost health problem. Undoubtedly, finding the key routes of hepatitis transmission from the point of prevention in every country, specifically in endemic regions, is of high priority. Such efforts are especially important given that many infected patients with hepatitis are asymptomatic (1, 2). Iran and Turkey are located in the Middle East, and HBV prevalence varies from intermediate to high in most countries in this region.
