Abstract

We report the first case of generalized granuloma annulare occurring in a 65-year-old woman who was chronically infected with hepatitis C virus. Granuloma annulare totally regressed during alpha-interferon treatment. As chronic hepatitis C virus infection is frequent, a serodiagnosis would be of interest in patients who have generalized granuloma annulare. A link between these 2 diseases may be strongly suspected.
