Sustained virologic response (SVR), defined as undetectable hepatitis C virus (HCV) RNA in serum 24 weeks after withdrawal of (pegylated)-interferonalfa (PEG-IFN)-based antiviral therapy, has become the primary goal for therapy of patients infected with HCV. Recent reports about “occult” persistence of HCV infection despite constantly negative serum HCV RNA1-14 have led to uncertainty in patients and physicians. This review gives a summary of available data regarding “occult” HCV infection.
