Renal hepatitis C in the absence of detectable serum or hepatic virus

Fowell, Andrew J., Sheron, Nicholas and Rosenberg, William M.C. (2008) Renal hepatitis C in the absence of detectable serum or hepatic virus Liver International, 28, (6), pp. 889-891. (doi:10.1111/j.1478-3231.2008.01672.x). (PMID:18647143).

Record type: Article


We report an apparently unique case where hepatitis C virus (HCV) RNA was identified in renal tissue from a patient with membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis and treated chronic hepatitis C, despite the absence of detectable virus in the serum or liver (COBAS Amplicor qualitative assay, lower limit of detection 50 IU/ml). The implications of this finding are discussed, with particular reference to current concepts regarding 'occult' hepatitis C infection.
