    Conclusions: Gene rearrangement analyses correlate highly with conventional morphologic diagnosis and phenotyping. The detection of gene rearrangement in lymphoid tissue has a high specificity (99%) and a reasonable sensitivity (83%) to the development of a lymphoproliferative disorder.

    Patients with chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection frequently have many extrahepatic manifestations, as persistent HCV infection often triggers lymphoproliferative disorders and metabolic abnormalities. These manifestations primarily include autoimmune disorders such as cryoglobulinemia,...

    The role of hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection in the induction of type II mixed cryoglobulinemia (MCII) and the possible establishment of related lymphoproliferative disorders, such as B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma (B-NHL), is well ascertained. However, the molecular pathways involved and the...

    B-cell lymphoproliferative disorders (BCLD) have been associated with chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection. The HCV glycoprotein E2 (gpE2) hypervariable region I (HVR-I) may be a potential antigenic candidate to promote B-cell proliferation. The purpose of this study was to analyze the...
