Keywords Hepatitis C virus; Mixed cryoglobulinemia; Genetics; Viral pathogenetic factors; Host pathogenetic factors
Core Tip Mixed cryoglobulinemia (MC) is the extrahepatic manifestation most strictly correlated with hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection; it is a benign autoimmune/ lymphoproliferative disorder that evolves to lymphoma in 5%-10% of cases. MC pathogenesis is still poorly understood. Several studies have tried to clarify the pathogenetic basis of MC and have suggested that HCV can trigger such a disorder only in the presence of still-undetermined genetic factors. Here, we attempt to clarify the relationship between HCV-related MC and the host's genetic background. The data that we report are heterogeneous and sometimes conflicting, so large, multicenter studies are clearly needed.
