How long after infection with HCV would a person be expected to develop acute hcv infection? Could it happen 5 months after exposure if coinfected with hiv? If coinfected by the same exposure, when can one expect either one ir both of the diseases to show up on a blood test?
Response from Dr. McGovern
With acute HCV you can usually detect virus within weeks...Just like with HIV....you can usually detect virus in weeks after the exposure.
