The present paper aimed to study different aspects of hepatitis B and its related factors and also show that this disease is one of the most common viral infections that affects humans and is associated with serious complications such as cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma. Hepatitis B exists throughout the world and more than 400 million people worldwide are infected with chronic hepatitis B. Only in the US, 5000 people annually die of cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma caused by hepatitis B. The required data and information in this study were collected through the study and analysis of newly-published articles throughout the world and searching for key words such as disease, hepatitis, hepatitis B, virus, infection, treatment, liver, Iran, lymphocytes, job, chronic carriers, addiction, and sexual relations on valid scientific websites such as SID and Google Scholar. Hepatitis virus exists in all fluids and secretions of the body and is transmitted through sexual contact, intravenous injections by drug users, mother-to-child transmission, and occupational exposures. Iran is considered among the areas with moderate prevalence of this disease and it seems that 35% of Iranians have exposed to hepatitis B and 2-3% of the populations are chronic carriers. However, the distribution of this disease is not the same in different areas.
