Author information

  • 1Department of Semiology, Iuliu Haţieganu University of Medicine, Cluj-Napoca.


Chronic hepatitis C is often asymptomatic and is mostly discovered accidentally. The natural course of viral C infection varies considerably from one person to another. Chronic hepatitis C more than other forms of hepatitis is diagnosed because of extrahepatic manifestations associated with the presence of HCV such as thyroiditis, porphyria cutanea tarda, cryoglobulinemia and glomerulonephritis, specifically membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis, sicca syndrome, thrombocytopenia, lichen planus, diabetes mellitus and B-cell lymphoproliferative disorders. We report here a case of a young man with hepatitis C and porphyria cutanea tarda who developed psoriasis after the beginning of systemic interferon therapy.
