Objective: Studies on the severity of fibrosis in chronic viral hepatitis are scarce and limited with only hepatitis C infection. The aim of this study was to determine the role of ABO-Rh blood groups in the severity of fibrosis and progression to cirrhosis in patients with chronic hepatitis B (CHB).
