摘要

Prior studies attempted to explore the association between schizophrenia and hepatitis C virus (HCV). However, their conclusions were inconsistent. This study aimed to examine the association of schizophrenia with HCV using a population-based dataset in Taiwan. There were 6097 patients with schizophrenia and 6097 sex- and age-matched comparison patients without schizophrenia included in this study. We defined the dependent variable of interest as whether or not a patient had received a diagnosis of HCV. We found that of the sampled patients, 2.1% of patients with schizophrenia and 1.4% of comparison patients had concurrent HCV. We further found that schizophrenia was not significantly associated with concurrent HCV after adjusting for sex, age, urbanization level, geographic region, monthly income, and drug abuse. However, of the sampled male patients, the adjusted odds of concurrent hepatitis C for patients with schizophrenia were 1.72-times higher than the odds of concurrent HCV among comparison patients. We failed to observe this association among female sampled patients. We concluded that schizophrenia was not significantly associated with concurrent HCV. However, of the sampled male patients, the risk of concurrent HCV among patients with schizophrenia was higher than comparison patients.
