Abstract

Evidence has been accumulated which shows an association between renal disease and hepatitis B virus (HBV), as reviewed in recent articles by Levy et al. (1982) and Eknoyan (1983). However, the mechanism of renal pathology has not yet been elucidated clearly. Ten centres in Japan and one in Korea (Seoul) have been performing a multicentre co-operative study to investigate the natural history and the pathogenesis of the nephropathy associated with HBV antigenaemia. The purpose of the present paper is to describe the association between the seroconversion of HBV antigens and favourable clinical evolution in children with HBV nephropathy.
