Abstract :
Objective: This study aimed to compare the prevalence of hepatitis C and B in whipping which are risk of blood borne diseases with non -whipped participant. Materials and methods: A case-control study was conducted at Khartoum state -Sudan. Clinical data was collected through a questionnaire prepared for this study, Five ml blood was drowned and serum was separated and freeze until used, four generation hepatitis C and third generation hepatitis B kits was used to detect the hepatitis C virus and Hepatitis B surface antigens by ELISA. Result: The median (IQR)age of cases and controls was 28(22-37), 31(27-42) y respectively, the whipping was started at the young age with mean 20y and range (13 -36 )y. The median IQR for the whipping frequency was 7(3-15) times. The education status for cases was (n= 32 35.5% 53 58% 5 6.5% ) primary secondary and graduated respectively while for control was (12 13.33% 24 26.66% 54 60% ) for primary secondary and graduated. The whipping was more common in secondary school than primary and graduated groups, the education was statistically correlated with whipping habits, whipping group was high risk to get viral hepatitis than control group odds ratio was 4.14 with statistically significant confidence interval CI for odds ratio (0.45,37.78). Furthermore, the whipping frequency and total whips are correlated with hepatitis C and B infection p. value 0.000 Conclusion: The prevalence of the HBV and HCV are prevalent in whipping group, more study with whipping scar was needed.
