We studied the association of the mannose-binding lectin-2 (MBL2) polymorphism with anti-thyroid antibodies (ATA) in hepatitis C virus (HCV)-infected Brazilian patients (n = 162) and 124 healthy volunteers screened for ATA. Our results showed that patients with ATA had higher frequency of genotype 00 than controls. MBL may play a role as disease modifier in HCV infection.
