Hep B recovery: The course of hepatitis B may be extremely variable. Hepatitis B virus infection has different clinical manifestations and outcomes depending on the patient’s age at infection and immune status, and the stage at which the disease is recognized. Approximately 2% of people with chronic infection recover.
