Long-term hepatitis E viral load kinetics in an immunocompromised patient treated with ribavirin.
Clin Microbiol Infect. 2014 Oct; 20(10):O718-20.CM

Abstract

Hepatitis E virus (HEV) can cause chronic infections in immunocompromised hosts. Viral kinetics in plasma and stools are poorly understood, particularly during antiviral treatment. Prolonged faecal shedding may be a concern for transmission. We describe HEV kinetics in an immunocompromised patient with prolonged faecal shedding despite undetectable viraemia on ribavirin treatment.
