Abstract

Key points

1. Recurrent hepatitis C is an increasing problem posttransplantation.

2. It is difficult to determine histologically if alloimmunity, i.e., rejection, is also plays a role in posttransplantation hepatitis C.

3. Change in the degree of immunosuppression, rather than the absolute amount of immunosuppression, is bad for HCV-infected recipients.

4. Corticosteroid boluses are bad for HCV-infected recipients.
