Hepatitis C is a contagious liver disease that results from infection with the hepatitis C virus. It can range in severity from a mild illness that lasts a few weeks to a serious, lifelong illness that attacks the liver.
Acute hepatitis C is a short-term illness that occurs within the first six months after someone is exposed to the hepatitis C virus. For reasons that are unknown, 15 to 25 percent of people “clear” the virus without treatment; however, approximately 75 to 85 percent of people who become infected with the hepatitis C virus develop “chronic” or life-long infection.
