Chronic Hepatitis C Pathology


Hepatitis C is an infectious hepatitis caused by hepatitis C virus (HCV).This systemic viral infection predominantly involves the liver hepatocytes and can result in both acute and chronic liver diseases.

HCV can also be detected in the peripheral blood, particularly in mononuclear cells. The extrahepatic pool of HCV is the major source of recurrent hepatitis C in orthotopic liver transplant recipients.
