Antibodies to the hepatitis delta virus (HDV) were found in 17.6% of 233 hepatitis B virus surface antigenpositive subjects in Cameroon. Phylogenetic analyses showed the presence of HDV-1, HDV-5, HDV-6, and HDV-7 genotypes. These results enrich the limited data on HDV prevalence and molecular diversity in Cameroon.Hepatitis delta virus (HDV) is associated with hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection and is frequently related to more severe disease than that due to the underlying HBV monoinfection (5, 10).
