Hello,

Trichrome stain shows portal fibrosis and fibrous septum formation.
Iron stains show no Iron deposits.
Immunostains  for HBsAG and HBcAG are in progress,
Comments: Findings are in consistent with chronic Hepatitis B with minimal activity(grade 1 of 4) and fibrous septa (stage 2 of 4)

Immunohistochemical stains: There are islands of HBsAg positive  hepatocytes with membranous  and sub-membranous expression and small number of cells with cytoplasmic HBsAG;  rare hepatocytes have HBcAG in nuclei and cyptoplasm. The findings are those of HBsAG predominance pattern with low Viral Replication.
