Hepatitis C is an infection of the liver that is caused by the hepatitis B virus (HBV). The infection causes inflammation in the liver, which can lead to damage and permanent loss of function. Hepatitis B can be spread through blood to-blood contact.
Hepatitis C can be acute and chronic. 75 to 85 percent of people with acute hepatitis C will also develop chronic hepatitis C. Chronic hepatitis C is a lifelong infection and can cause many serious health problems like cirrhosis, liver cancer, and death.
