Hepatitis C virus, cryoglobulinemia, and kidney: Higher HCV viral loads may result in more immune complexes and increased deposition of viral complexes in the kidney and a higher risk for HCV-related nephropathy 1,13 on the contrary, a sustained virological response serum HCV-RNA undetectable may reduce post-transplant recurrence of HCVas well as chronic allograft nephropathy 1,13, Two months after the last dose of rituximab, glomerullnefrite SCr improved to 1.

Natural History, Pathogenesis, Diagnosis and Management. The association of this virus with mixed cryoglobulinaemia in our case may be explained by the presence of circulating anti-HCV antibodies, and the glomerulonefritf of HCV-RNA in the cryoprecipitate, suggesting that HCV exerted a pathogenic role in the formation of cryoglobulins.
