Abstract

ABSTRACT

After a patient acquired hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection in our unit, we performed epidemiologic and virologic investigations, including genotyping and phylogenetic analyses. The results provided evidence for HCV transmission between two patients sharing the same machine and suggested possible transmission via accidental contamination of the venous pressure monitoring system
