In the series it was obtained that the infection due to both viruses was more frequent in the 30-39 age group (36.0%), in male sex (96.0%) and in the members of the multiple risks group (64.0%). Most of the patients had been diagnosed with the co-infection in less than the 3 years, they stated more than one clinical feature and presented high results in the liver functional tests
