This article summarizes findings of a review of recent articles related to the possible associations between (viral) hepatitis and Parkinson’s disease. There is growing evidence for an association between Hepatitis C and Parkinson’s disease, while there is conflicting evidence for such an association between Hepatitis B and Parkinson’s disease. More research is needed into the causes of Parkinson’s disease, including its relation to Hepatitis B and C. Implications for clinical practice include regular neurological evaluation of HCV positive patients.

Keywords: Parkinson’s disease; Hepatitis C; Risk factor; Hepatitis B

Abbreviations: Hepatitis C Virus (HCV), Parkinson’s Disease (PD), Confidence Interval (CI), Hepatitis Virus (HBV)
