Hepatitis C infections are caused by the hepatitis virus and can result in inflammation of the liver, affecting its ability to function. Severe cases of hepatitis C can result in liver failure, liver cancer or cirrhosis of the liver. Hepatitis is usually contracted from contaminated blood, blood transfusions or through intravenous drug use.
