hep c with babies

Oct 24, 2010

i am a foster of a baby that just got tested for hep c and he is positive could he take or have the treatment he is 6 mo. old

Response from Dr. Holodniy

When you say tested positive for HCV what does that mean? Which tests were obtained and which were positive? It is important to determine whether the test is a false positive, true positive with cleared infection or chronic infection. You should consult with a pediatric infectious disease specialist.
