Text ExtractionThe role of hepatitis C virus (HCV) is well established in the development of chronic hepatitis, cirrhosis and hepatic carcinoma, as well as in mixed type II cryoglobulinemia, membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis (MPGN) and porphyria cutanea tarda (PCT). Increasing evidence has been reported of a close association of HCV infection with autoimmune and hematological processes, mainly cytopenias and lymphoproliferative disorders such as B cell non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. We describe the demographic, clinical and histopathological findings of nine patients from the Mexican population with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and HCV infection.
