Many papers have been published, but none have listed the most influential work in the field of hepatitis C. Objectives: The aim of this study is to produce a bibliometric historical review on hepatitis C and its management. Methods: We underwent a title-specific search using Scopus database in 2017; using hepatitis C as our search term. The top 100 most cited articles were obtained and analyzed. Results: The top 100 articles received an average of 1273 citation per paper. The most productive years of publication ranged between 1999 and 2003 which accounted for 33 articles in our list.
