About this book

Introduction

This book is a concise and up-to-date review of the clinical features, pathophysiology, diagnosis, and treatment of patients with hepatitis C. Busy health care professionals who want a quick review of hepatitis C and new developments in treatment for hepatitis C will benefit from this succinct guide.

Hepatitis C virus primarily infects liver cells and can lead to chronic damage to the liver. Patients with hepatitis C infection often develop liver sequelae such as fibrosis, cirrhosis, and hepatocellular carcinoma if left untreated. It is estimated that 150 million people worldwide are infected with hepatitis C virus, and if eradication is to be achieved it is imperative to diagnose and treat such individuals.
