The prevalence of anti-HCV antibodies among hemodialysis patients in the Eastern region of Saudi Arabia was 42.8%. This is comparable to the observations from the Central region of the country. Repeated blood transfusions of non-screened HCV blood seems to be the major factor responsible for this high prevalence. Clinical liver disease was infrequent in the early phase of the infection.
