blood report of 'reactive', may sometimes be an erroneous report if she has recently had intavenous immunoglobulin therapy
. Hence, it is important that you confirm this on a different laboratory who preferably should use a different analyser/assay.

should be done to see if there is a true infection.
There is good treatment for HCV infection now (interferon-alpha plus ribavirin
), but please ensure that she definitely has HCV before starting treatment.
