Intrafamilial transmission of hepatitis C virus in patients with severe haemophilia A
Culasso ACA et al. – The Hepatitis C Virus (HCV) sequences from the study resulted highly related, being those obtained from the uncle the most ancestral ones. Because of the chronological order in which the infections occurred and the relatedness of the sequences, an infection from the uncle to his nephews is the most likely explanation. Special cares must be applied in the case of household contact among members of a family with inherited bleeding disorders.
