A 75-year-old retired truck driver was referred for evaluation of abnormal liver function tests, which had been found at a routine check-up. He was asymptomatic. Prior medical history included a myocardial infarction 4 years before, benign prostatic hypertrophy, and jaundice at 17 years of age. He had never had a tattoo, drank very little, but had had blood transfusions following a prostatectomy in 2001. He had not recently travelled and was a non-smoker.
