Hepatitis C is an inflammation of the liver caused by the hepatitis C virus. It affects more than 4 million Americans and often has no symptoms. People at risk for infection include those who received a blood transfusion before 1992, have ever used intravenous drugs, have frequent workplace contact with blood, have multiple sex partners or were born to a hepatitis C-infected mother.
If left untreated it can cause cirrhosis, a disease that results in scarring of the liver, liver dysfunction and liver failure. Cirrhosis is the leading cause of liver transplants.
