Hepatitis B is a fatal disease widespread around the country. HBsAg is the most common marker of infection for diagnosis and screening. An individual positive for HBsAg is considered to be infected with HBV, and is therefore potentially infectious. In the present study, we observed the seroprevelance of HbsAg among population of at a tertiary care teaching hospital in southern Rajasthan  from March 2016 to May 2016.The test was conducted using one step rapid card immunoassay. We observed 0.75% positivity in samples of HbsAg out of which female prevalence was more as compared to males that was 11.2% and 8.8% respectively. Highest Prevalence was seen among age group of 20-40 years population. Our study highlights about the seropositivity of HBsAg among population of southern Rajasthan and also shows its relation with age and sex of the population.

Keywords: HBsAg, Seroprevelance, immunoassay, Southern Rajasthan.
