Abstract

Fulminant hepatic failure is defined by the presence of severe impairment of liver function, with or without encephalopathy, in patients with no underlying chronic liver disease. We report the case of a 4-month-old infant who developed fulminant hepatitis B infection and recovered concomitant with tenofovir therapy without liver transplantation.
