... Abstract Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection is associated with some extrahepatic complications, like diabetes, cryoglobulinemia, and membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis. Each of these complications has important implications in the renal allograft recipient. Hence, HCV infection is strongly...
