Hepatitis B type 2 infection was observed in 96 French soldiers. A recent stay overseas was reported by 65% of them and an HBsAg chronic carrier state was observed in eight individuals. Anti-pre-S1 and anti-pre-S2 antibodies were not detected after recovery, but HBV DNA was detected in 58 % of sera tested. © 1990.
