Abstract

In patients with malignancies, chronic hepatitis C reactivation or severe flare is uncommon and antiviral treatment is deferred mainly due to underlying bone marrow and immune suppression. We report the use of antiviral treatment concomitantly to chemotherapy in 3 children with hematologic malignancies, chronic hepatitis C, and significant liver dysfunction.
