Abstract

We discuss the diagnosis and management of a case of generalized granuloma annulare (GA) occurring in a 49-year-old man when being treated with pegylated interferon-alfa for hepatitis C infection. In our case, the GA lesions remained despite an undetectable hepatitis C viral load. The GA resolved only with treatment cessation.
