The risk of recurrence of liver cirrhosis and hepatocellularcarcinoma due to hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection was 90%following liver transplantation before 1990’s but now we rarelysee recurrence due to the highly effective prophylactic treatments.In this review, we discussed the achievements of the prophylactictreatments in patients transplanted for HBV diseases. Options forhyperimmune globulin usage and high genetic barier anti-viraldrugs can be used to prevent the recurrence.Keywords: Liver transplant, Hepatitis B hyperimmune globulin,Recurrence
