Is there any connection between HCV and peripheral nervous system damage in co-infected patients?


Dr. Chung writes--

This is a tough one, as many factors can contribute to neuropathy in coinfected persons, including antiretroviral medications, diabetes, and hcv itself through a related condition known as cryoglobulinemia.

This should be checked, and if positive, some thought should be given to treatment for HCV/cryoglobulinemia.. RC Ask our Experts All Questions
