Abstract/OtherAbstract:
BACKGROUND: Sarcoidosis is a multisystemic granulomatous disorder of unknown etiology that most commonly affects young adults. A probable induction of sarcoidosis by interferons (IFN) has been published. To this date, few cases of cutaneous sarcoidosis inpatients with chronic hepatitis C under interferon treatment have been reported. OBJECTIVE: We describe a 50-year-old woman with chronic hepatitis C who developed lesions of cutaneous sarcoidosis three months after IFN treatment. CONCLUSIONS: The possible role of INF therapy in the development of cutaneous sarcoidosis in a patient with chronic hepatitis C should be considered.
