Core Tip No comprehensive reported data is available in the literature about estimated the prevalence rate of occult hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection in the Middle East and Eastern Mediterranean countries. This is the first systematic review and meta-analysis calculating occult HCV infection rate in this region. We estimated the overall rate as well as the rates among both healthy and high-risk population such as those infected with human immunodeficiency virus, patients with end-stage renal diseases, cryptogenic liver diseases, cleared or treated HCV infection, lymphoproliferative disorders, or multi-transfused patients.
