In this study the natural history of HBV and HCV infections in children is presented. The asymptomatic course of infections with mild biochemical and histopathological activity of liver disease are described. The epidemiology of HBV infection is shown in the context of common HBV vaccinations. Recent opinions concerning the vertical transmission of HCV infections and the high efficacy of antiviral treatment of chronic hepatitis B and chronic hepatitis C are reviewed.
