Associated Conditions of Chronic Hepatitis B

About associated conditions: Associated conditions are those which appear statistically related, but do not have a clear cause or effect relationship. Whereas the complications are caused by Chronic Hepatitis B, and underlying causes may be causes of Chronic Hepatitis B, the following list shows associated conditions that simply appear with higher frequency in people who have Chronic Hepatitis B. In some cases, there may be overlap between this list and risk factors for Chronic Hepatitis B. People with Chronic Hepatitis B may be more likely to get a condition on the list of associated conditions, or the reverse may be true, or both. Whether they are causes of, caused by, or simply coincidentally related to Chronic Hepatitis B is not always clear. For general information, see Associated Condition Misdiagnosis.

Associated conditions list: The list of conditions mentioned by various sources as associated with Chronic Hepatitis B includes:

Chronic Hepatitis B as a risk factor: Another type of associated condition is one for which Chronic Hepatitis B is itself a risk factor. The conditions for which Chronic Hepatitis B is listed as a risk factor includes:

  • Hepatoma
  • Liver Cancer

Associated conditions: The most important risk factor for liver cancer is a chronic infection with the hepatitis B virus or the hepatitis C virus. These viruses can be passed from person to person through blood (such as by sharing needles) or sexual contact. An infant may catch these viruses from an infected mother. Liver cancer can develop after many years of infection with the virus.1
