We report the virological interaction in, clinical presentation of, and course of disease observed in 3 male injection drug users with acute hepatitis B virus (HBV) and hepatitis C virus (HCV) coinfection. In all 3 cases, HBV infection presented first and quickly resolved. Diagnosis of acute HBV/HCV coinfection requires a long follow-up period with careful observation.
