Abstract: 
We read with interest the recent article by Mumtaz and colleagues published in Hepatitis Monthly. The authors attempted to describe an epidemiological pattern of hepatitis B virus (HBV) in Pakistan and compare this pattern to other parts of the world. To determine the genotype of 257 isolated HBV, a line probe assay was used. The HBV genotype D was determined among 247 cases, and 9 patients were infected with genotypes B and D. One strain with genotype A was isolated as well.
