Abstract

The seroprevalence of hepatitis C virus (HCV) was investigated in 16 tattooed men with chronic liver diseases using the Ortho-Chiron HCV antibody ELISA system. In 11 out of the 16 men, the result was positive, which was significantly higher as compared with that of presumably healthy blood donors in the Tokyo area, i. e., 1.14% of 2470 donors tested. These results suggest that HCV infection occurred at the time of tattooing in these 11 patients.
