BACKGROUND The disappearance of anti-HCV antibodies over time, after a self-limited infection, also referenced seroreversion, has been observed. The frequency of this phenomenon remains controversial, especially in immunocompetent subjects. However, it has important implications in the context of transfusion inquiries, in particular in case of a blood donor suspected to have transmitted HCV through a past blood donation.
