Patients with chronic liver disease (CLD) often have neurological sequelae, of which hepatic encephalopathy is the most frequent and reversible. Rare irreversible complications of CLD are acquired (non Wilsonian) hepatocerebral degeneration (AHCD) and hepatic myelopathy (HM). To our knowledge, AHCD has rarely been reported in patients with hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection. We report a patient with HCV infection who developed AHCD and resulted in serious complications.
