CHRONIC HEPATITIS C IN CHILDREN: PROBLEMS AND PROSPECTS

Cover Page

Abstract


The analysis of the problem of chronic hepatitis C (CHC) in children. The data on the incidence of primary CHC child population on the territory of the Russian Federation and abroad. The problems of diagnosis of HCV-infection. Conducted a review of the risk of infection, highlight the possible routes of transmission are shown peculiarities of HCV-infected children, shows the frequency of chronic process. The state of the problem at the moment and evaluated further promise in the treatment of chronic hepatitis C in children.
