Hepatic giant cells in hepatitis C virus (HCV) mono-infection and HCV/HIV co-infection.

BACKGROUND The clinical and biological significance of syncytial giant cell change of hepatocytes in hepatitis C viral (HCV) infection is poorly understood. AIM To investigate the clinical and histological correlates of giant cell transformation in the setting of HCV mono-infection and co-infection with HCV and HIV. METHODS The prevalence of hepatocyte… CONTINUE READING
