This study assesses behavioral disorders and depression in 50 patients with chronic viral hepatitis (32 patients with HBV and 18 patients with HCV). A psychodiagnostic protocol composed of the IBQ and the BDI was administered to the entire sample in two stages—at the time of recruitment (T1) and after 8 months, when patients were receiving pharmacological treatment (T2). The results showed a predominance of behavioral disorders and depression in patients with HCV compared to HBV patients, although all patients with chronic viral hepatitis, despite reduction in viral load, displayed reduced quality of working life and relationships

Abstract

This study assesses behavioral disorders and depression in 50 patients with chronic viral hepatitis (32 patients with HBV and 18 patients with HCV). A psychodiagnostic protocol composed of the IBQ and the BDI was administered to the entire sample in two stages—at the time of recruitment (T1) and after 8 months, when patients were receiving pharmacological treatment (T2). The results showed a predominance of behavioral disorders and depression in patients with HCV compared to HBV patients, although all patients with chronic viral hepatitis, despite reduction in viral load, displayed reduced quality of working life and relationships
