Özet

Objective: Hepatitis delta virus (HDV) is the smallest known virus to infect humans. HDV, a defective ribonucleic acid (RNA) virus, is also the most important cause of liver-related mortality in patients with hepatitis B. Fifteen-20 million people worldwide are estimated to be infected with HDV. In this study, we aimed to determine the epidemiological and clinical manifestations of HDV infection and to asses the data on clinical and laboratory findings, treatments, serologies and biopsy results in patients with HDV infection.
