Coinfection with HBV and HCV may lead to serious consequences. The present study was done to find out the prevalence of coinfection in patients with chronic liver disease. From patients with hepatitis and chronic liver disease 1673 samples were received and analysed for HBsAg by ELISA. 1342 samples were analysed for anti HCV by third generation ELISA. 493 samples positive for HBsAg were also analysed for Anti HCV to see the prevalence of coinfection. 15(3.0%) were found positive for both HBsAg and anti HCV. Out of 15 patients with coinfection 4 (26.6%) had HCC. Prevalence of HCC in patients with coinfection was higher than either infection alone i.e. HBV-9.1% and HCV-16.5%.
