BackgroundzzMononeuropathy multiplex is a rare complication during the course of chronic hepatitis B, despite various neuropathies following acute hepatitis B having been reported previously. Case ReportzzA 30-year-old man presented with sensorimotor symptoms in multiple peripheral nerves. The serological tests for hepatitis were consistent with chronic active hepatitis B. After treatment with oral prednisone combined with an antiviral agent, the sensory and motor symptoms improved and hepatitis B virus replication was reduced. ConclusionszzWe suggest that chronic immune-mediated neuropathy associated with hepatitis B virus infection should be considered in the differential diagnosis of patients with hepatitis B. J Clin Neurol 2010;6:156-158 Key Wordszz�chronic hepatitis B, mononeuropathy multiplex
