Chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection is an important cause of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). In the past, pegylated interferon with ribavarin was the only treatment available, which conferred limited efficacy and is contraindicated in patients with decompensated cirrhosis and other medical conditions such as autoimmune illnesses, psychiatric diseases and heart failure. The approval of direct-acting antivirals (DAAs) in recent years has led to dramatic increase in the cure rate of chronic HCV infection. Consequently, the complications arising from HCV, including HCC and decompensated cirrhosis, are expected to be declining. In this special issue, the following topics will be discussed:• The changing epidemiology of HCV-related HCC
