La hepatitis C es una infeccion viral que puede afectar pacientes con o sin el virus de sida.En alrededor de un 30% de todos los casos ,puede causar Hepatitis cronica y dano severo al higado.(cirrhosis).En los pacientes con sida,la enfermedad es mas severa.Se obtiene mediante contacto de sangre,como compartir agujas,tatuajes ,sexo,transfusiones de sangre antes del 1991.Hay alternativas de tratamiento,que son efectivas y eliminan el virus en un % grande de casos.
