PARODIS LOPEZ, Yanet et al. Treatment of hepatitis C in end-stage chronic renal failure in hemodialysis with Interferon 2 b and ribavirine. Rev cubana med [online]. 2005, vol.44, n.3-4, pp. 0-0. ISSN 1561-302X.

The case of a 32-year-old male patient with past health until he was 29 years old, when he began to present an end-stage chronic renal failure, was reported. Dialytic treatment was immediately applied and 5 months later hepatitis C was diagnosed. It was decided to perform a kidney transplant from a living donor, but it was not possible due to the existence of a marked histolysis. He was initially treated with interferon 2b for a year without making the PCR negative. Therefore, he received combined treatment of interferon 2b and ribavirine (first case reported in our country of a patient undergoing hemodialysis). The PCR yielded negative, the cytolysis disappeared and the kidney transplant was successfully performed (from a living donor that was his relative) 2 months after concluding the treatment. The biochemical, hematological and virological evolution with both therapeutics was presented

Palabras clave : Hemodialysis; hepatitis C; interferon; ribavirine.
