Chronic hepatitis B is still a disease process that affects millions around the world. Serologies used to diagnose and follow the progression (or resolution) of the disease can be confusing for clinicians. Further, throughout years of treatment, there may be nuances in presentation that complicate management even further. In this short communication, we highlight six themes in response to treatment and outcomes, including complications. We have the unique perspective of following many patients over extended periods of time at our institution, which has brought these themes to life in order that they can be shared with other clinicians who may encounter similar situations.
