ABSTRACT

A 43-year old man acquired acute hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection with unclear route of transmission. There were no known sexual or other risk factors for HCV acquisition. Phylogenetic analysis confirmed that the case was infected with identical genotype 1b strain. After symptomatic treatment for three weeks, the HCV was spontaneously cleared and liver function recovered.
