Abstract

Eighty patients, 20 with hepatocellular carcinoma and 60 with cirrhosis, were evaluated for the presence of anti-hepatitis C virus antibodies and hepatitis B virus markers (hepatitis B surface antigen, antibodies to core and surface hepatitis B virus) by ELISA-Abbott standard kits. Seventeen (85%) patients with hepatocellular carcinoma had ulderlying cirrhosis. Serologic evidence of hepatitis C virus infection was found in 26(43.3%) patients with cirrhosis and in nine (45%) patients with hepatocellular carcinoma. The aforementioned hepatitis B virus markers were found in 47 (78.3%) patients with hepatocellular carcinoma and 5(8.3%) with cirrhosis and concurrent B and C infection. Chronic hepatitis B and C virus infection is a common etiology among patients with cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma in Romania.
