Detecção do genótipo 4 do vírus da hepatite C em Salvador, BA

Abstract: 2 RESUMOÉ descrito o primeiro caso de detecção do genótipo 4 do vírus da hepatite C (VHC) em Salvador, BA. Foram utilizados os testes de RT-PCR para detecção do VHC-RNA, e o LIPA para genotipagem. O genótipo 4 responde mal ao tratamento, sendo portanto importante a busca ativa dos contactantes.

“…When comparing different regions of Brazil, genotype 1 is more prevalent in the North, genotype 2 is more prevalent in the Central-West, especially in Mato Grosso State, and genotype 3 is more prevalent in the South region. Conversely, genotypes 4 and 5 are rarely found, with cases described mainly in São Paulo and only one case reported in Bahia 8,9 .…”

“…Previous data about HCV genotypes in Brazil found types 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5. In all regions genotype 1 was the most frequent, whereas type 4 and 5 are rare ( [7] , [19] , [20] , [21] ). The similarities between the pattern of HCV genotypes distribution in Brazil and that found in many European countries have been pointed out.…”
