March 2017 Lab Puzzler
March  2017

In this issue of the Puzzler Dr. Rooney presents a Lab Puzzler.

A 28-year-old male applies for $1 million dollars of life insurance. He recently tried to donate blood but was declined because of an abnormal Hepatitis B test. The Hepatitis B core antibody was positive. LFT’s were normal. HBsAg was negative. Are there any mortality concerns from this situation?

You will find the answer in the March 2017 Lab Puzzler answer.
