Mixed cryoglobulinaemia after hepatitis C virus: more and less ambiguity
Figure 1: Results of the Italian6 and French7 studies are compared. The prevalences of cirrhosis in essential mixed cryoglobulinaemia (EMC) and in cryoglobulinaemia secondary to chronic liver disease (2° CLD) are shown. The prevalences of the type of cryoglobulinaemia (II or III) and rheumatoid factor (RF) and antibodies to hepatitis C virus antigens (HCV Ab) in the serum are shown for each group.
