The occult infections are widely found in co-infections with viral agents of hepatitis C (HCV) and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). These three viruses share similar transmission routes, so that cases of co-infections are common. People infected with HCV or HIV is more prone to infection occult. The cases of co-infections are characterized by an exacerbation of liver disease and a very strong increase in the risk of developing hepatocellular carcinoma HCC.
