Recurrent hepatitis C virus induced liver disease in liver transplant recipients
A rare hepatic disease characterized by recurrence of hepatitis C virus infection after liver transplantation leading to liver injury with features resembling those observed in the non-transplant graft and typically developing after three months post-transplantation. The clinical course is highly variable although patients most commonly develop progressive chronic liver disease with higher viral loads and more rapid fibrosis progression than in the immunocompetent population.
