Abstract

The association of hepatitis C virus (HCV) with neoplasia is not completely understood. Hepatitis C virus is hepatolymphotrophic. It is considered an inducing factor of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) and is associated with various types of lymphomas. We describe a patient with HCV cirrhosis who developed gastric lymphoma and HCC, and we review the current data and theories about the oncogenesis of HCV.
