Core Tip There are more than 11 million hepatitis C virus (HCV)-infected children worldwide. Most new HCV-infected cases have occurred through vertical trans­mission. Currently, a new era of highly effective direct-acting antiviral agents for the treatment of HCV infection has begun for paediatric patients. The first results of clinical trials with interferon-free therapy are very pro­mising. ESPGHAN developed a position paper for the management of chronic HCV infection in children. Non-invasive methods to measure hepatic fibrosis enable the identification of patients with significant liver fibrosis. This article summarizes the current data on epidemiology, new therapies and non-invasive methods in paediatric patients with HCV infection.
