In viral hepatitis infection, there are five main strains of the hepatitis virus, types A, B, C, D and E. Hepatitis B is a liver disease caused by the hepatitis B virus (HBV). This infection can be acute or chronic. Hepatitis B in children occurs because HBV can be transmitted vertically from mother to child. Vertical transmission, 95% occurred in the perinatal period (at birth delivery) and 5% were intra-uterine.
