Core Tip Hepatitis B virus (HBV) is considered hyperendemic in the Middle East. In the 1980s, the overall prevalence of HBV infection in Saudi Arabia was 8.3%, making it one of the most highly endemic areas in the world. This high prevalence made HBV-related disease a leading indication for liver transplantation (LT). The use of potent anti-HBV agents has led to a changing trend in the indications for LT. HBV is currently the third leading indication for LT in this hyperendemic area. Additionally, there has been a shift in the indication for transplantation from hepatic decompensation to hepatocellular carcinoma.
