Abstract

The importance of chronic hepatitis C infection is significant. 3% of the World's population is infected. There is at least one extrahepatic manifestation in 50% of HCV patients, which makes the prognosis and mortality worse. The pathomechanisms included are cryoglobulin production, immunmechanisms, and direct viral effects. The authors summarize the main extrahepatic manifestations, as well as treatment possibilities. The aim is to draw attention to this colourful infection in order to improve the recognition in the era of the new effective direct antiviral agents.
