Abstract

Various factors contribute to the development of porphyria cutanea tarda (PCT). In this case report, we describe a patient with hepatitis C infection and chronic renal failure. The individual mechanisms, which promote cutaneous disease, are discussed. Finally, we propose that each factor may have an additive effect in prolonging the skin lesions of PCT.
