A novel DNA virus, associated with non A-G post-transfusion hepatitis, has been recently discovered. TTV is detectable in acute and chronic liver diseases with a variable incidence. The clinical significance of TTV coinfection in patients with chronic HCV hepatitis has not yet been defined. In this review we report the data regarding the possible pathogenetic role of TTV infection in chronic HCV hepatitis.
