Abstract: 

In the recent issue of Middle East Journal of Digestive Diseases, we read with great interest the article by Bahari et al. 1, “Significance of response to hepatitits B vaccine in subjects with isolated antibody to hepatitis B core antigen”.
We wanted to specify some important matters related to the article.
Initially, definition of occult hepatitis B virus infection is the existence of hepatitis B virus (HBV) deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) in the liver of individuals negative for hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg) by currently available assays.
2Serum HBV DNA titres may be detectable (usually very low, <200 IU/ml) or undetectable, and may show fluctuation in occult hepatitis B virus infection patients. Also, occult hepatitis B virus infection may occur not only seropositive for antibodies to hepatitis B core antigen (anti-HBc) and/or antibodies to HBsAg (anti-HBs), but also seronegative.
