SVR and Extrahepatic Manifestations

In this issue:

While the hepatic manifestations of hepatitis C infection (HCV) (eg, cirrhosis and liver cancer) are well known, the extrahepatic manifestations are also common and similarly contribute to significant morbidity and mortality. How has identification and management of these conditions changed in this era of more readily achieved sustained virologic response?

In this issue, Dr. Rajender Reddy from the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania analyzes the current state of knowledge about the extrahepatic manifestations of chronic HCV and the impact of sustained virologic response after HCV therapy.

Learning objectives:

  • Assess the burden, consequences, and impact of hepatitis C antiviral therapy on the extrahepatic manifestations of chronic hepatitis C.
  • Describe the extrahepatic manifestations of chronic hepatitis C.
  • Explain the impact of sustained virologic response after hepatitis C therapy.
