Hepatitis G is a form of liver inflammation caused by HGV from the Flaviviridae family. It is known that transfused blood containing HGV has caused some cases of hepatitis. For this reason, patients with hemophilia and other bleeding conditions who require large amounts of blood products are at risk of hepatitis G. Also at risk are patients with kidney disease with blood exchange by hemodialysis.
