Not many data exist to guide us in the management of patients with chronic hepatitis B virus infection and “normal” alanine aminotransferase levels. Many of these patients may not have normal levels on long-term follow-up or when the upper limit of normal is determined from a truly healthy reference population. These patients may have significant histologic disease and benefit from further investigation or treatment. This article focuses on the disease course of such patients.
