We aim to observe the inflammatory status in patients with hepatitis C associated cryoglobulinemia after COVID-19 infection. We evaluated 3 patients with hepatitis C associated cryoglobulinemia, 6 patients with hepatitis C and 16 patients without comorbidities with COVID-19 infection. Inflammatory markers were significantly increased in 2 patients with cryoglobulinemia, as opposed to patients without the associated condition, with or without hepatitis C. In the third patient the levels of C reactive protein and erythrocyte sedimentation rate were similar to HCV positive patients.
