Abstract

HCV infection is related to hepatic disease and mixed cryoglobulinaemia (MC). Renal involvement is reported in one third of cryoglobulinaemic patients. The combination of HCV-related MC with renal involvement has been associated with poor survival and identified as “Hepatitis C Virus Risk Syndrome (HCV-RS)”. Here we describe antiviral treatment and management of side effects (anaemia and neutropenia) with RHuEpo and GCSF in a rare case of HCV-RS.
