This review reinforces the lack of a single maternal risk factor that is highly associated with vertical transmission (VT) of the infection with hepatitis C virus (HCV): indeed HCV RNA levels, mode of delivery, breast feeding, viral genotype or maternal IL28B status were not associated with HCV VT.


KEY WORDS: HCV - Breastfeeding - Delivery - Vertical - Transmission - Newborn
