Introduction: Infection with the Hepatitis B virus (HBV), a global health issue, has already affected one-third of the world’s population. India is home to approximately 40 million HBV carriers, accounting for 10–15 percent of the world’s total pool of HBV carriers. Every year, over 100,000 Indians die as a result of HBV-related illnesses. Aims and objectives: To investigate the epidemiological profile and clinical spectrum of patients infected with the Hepatitis B virus. Materials and Methods: This prospective study was conducted at the Department of Medical Gastroenterology, PGIMS, Rohtak, over a ten-year period, from 01.09.2010 to 31.08.2020, on HbsAg positive patients who presented to the outdoor patient department or were admitted to various wards of the hospital. Conclusion: Hepatitis B has hotspots in India, such as Haryana. Young males from rural areas are particularly vulnerable due to unsafe needle and injection practices caused by a lack of proper health care facilities.
