This study was performed for the detection of hepatitis C virus (HCV) RNA by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) in the sera of the hemophiliac patients. A total of 232 frozen (at -30°C) hemophiliac sera were examined. It was found that 114 of the patients (49.13%) had HCV RNA positive sera, 114 of the patients (49.13%) had HCV RNA negative sera and the sera of the 4 patients (1.72%) were considered as indetermined.
