Deciding to Initiate Antiviral Treatment in Patients with Chronic Hepatitis B Virus Infection
This answer is incorrect. Seroconversion from HBeAg positive to HBeAg negative occurs at a rate of 8 to 12% yearly and is frequently associated with elevations in serum liver enzymes. This patient, however, has documented liver enzyme elevation for 6 months, and is still positive for HBeAg, suggesting he is unlikely to undergo spontaneous HBeAg seroconversion.
