Strange Odor???

  I have chronic hepatitis C and in the past month I have developed a strange body odor.  I have also noticed a stronger smell of urine and bowels that is very sour.  Could this be related to hepC or should I look elsewhere for the cause of the odor.

Dear Clara:
Well, your question is one of the more interesting ones that I have received.  I doubt that your odor is related to your hepatitis C.  While anything is possible, I have not have other patients complain of this problem and I do not know of any reports in the literature that talk about this.  It is possible to have odor with very advanced liver disease and I assuming that you do not have this.  
Good luck with your situation.  I hope this information is helpful to you.  If you have additional information or questions, I would invite you to post the material to MEDHELP or to contact us directly at Henry Ford (313) 916-8865.  If you are in the Detroit or Michigan area, I would certainly invite you to see us. We have an active group of liver specialists and we have a strong interest in and experience with hepatitis C.
