Virus C infection has been associated with a broad spectrum of extrahepatic diseases such as essential mixed cryoglobulinemia, membranous glomerulonephritis, vasculitis, rheumatoid arthritis and lupus erythematosus. The etiologic role of virus C has also been observed in some neoplasms such as non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and the monoclonal gammapathies.
Many studies also support the link between this virus and porphyria cutanea tarda (PCT). Isolated cases suggest a relationship with dermatomyositis.
Herein, we report the coexistence of PCT, non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and dermatomyositis in the same patient affected with virus C infection which has never previously been described.
