The Hepatitis D virus (HDV) is a defective RNA virus that requires the presence an established Hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection to be pathogenic in humans. HDV infection has recently been estimated to carry global disease burden of 62-72 million and results in the most aggressive form of chronic viral hepatitis with progression to cirrhosis in 70-80% of patients within 5 to 10 years. In addition, HDV has also been associated with an increased risk of hepatic decompensation, hepatocellular carcinoma(HCC), liver transplantation, and mortality compared to HBV mono-infection. Due to the seriousness of HDV-related liver disease, accurate assessment of disease stage (fibrosis)is critical because of prognostic implications related to progressive liver disease leading to cirrhosis, portal hypertensive sequelae, mortality, and HCC.
