Hepatitis C and polycythemia vera (PV) co-existence is not rare; it has been reported in the literature. Treatment with interferon (IFN) has been used to treat both conditions; however, the use of IFN in concomitant hepatitis C infection with PV and its outcome are rarely described in the literature. Here, we report a 56-years-old male patient with hepatitis C virus infection and PV, who was treated with IFN for his chronic hepatitis C, which resulted in significant improvement of HB as well as normalization of his bone marrow and eradication of the clone (Jak2 V617F).
