Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

The diagnosis code may be an error if your son is doing well.

The diagnosis code means your son has liver failure resulting in confusion or unconsciousness caused by hepatitis C infection. This can be an error If it was meant to be without hepatic coma.

Do you have his last blood test results?
