Discusses whether hepatitis C cause liver injury by pathways associated with mitochondrial dysfunction. Prevalence of hepatitis C virus (HCV) in developing countries; Ways HCV could induce mithochondrial dysfunction; Possibility that HCV might lead to an increase in intracellular oxidant production that could cause the mitochondrial alterations and dysfunction.
