Abstract

Six cases of acute hepatitis C related to computed tomography scanning with contrast were identified in 3 hospitals. A patient with chronic hepatitis C had been subjected to the same procedure immediately before each patient in whom acute infection developed. Viral molecular analysis showed identity between isolates from patients with acute and chronic hepatitis C.
