Answer

Other viral serologic tests may be useful in ruling out other causes of hepatitis, which can be present alone or in combination with hepatitis C virus.

  • Hepatitis A virus immunoglobulin M (IgM) and immunoglobulin G (IgG)

  • Hepatitis B virus surface antigen and antibody, core antibody

  • Cytomegalovirus (CMV) IgM and IgG (and/or CMV in urine cultures)

  • Epstein-Barr virus IgM and IgG

  • HIV IgG enzyme-linked immunoassay (ELISA)
