Hepatitis C virus (HCV) can cause both acute and chronic hepatitis, which is an inflammatory process in the liver. The acute process is self-limited, rarely causes hepatic failure, and usually leads to chronic infection. Chronic HCV infection often follows a progressive course over many years and can ultimately result in cirrhosis (liver scarring), hepatocellular carcinoma, and the need for liver transplantation. This infection has a high coincidence in patients with serious mental diseases. The care of a consumer with hepatitis C requires a team of health care professionals to deliver the best quality care, and the case manager plays an integral role in this team assuring the coordination of care.
