After combined therapy with pegylated interferon alfa-2b and ribavirin was started for the treatment of chronic hepatitis C in a 34-year-old male Jamaican, finger-tip-sized nodules appeared all over his body. Histopathological examination of these nodules resulted in the diagnosis of sarcoidosis. High resolution CT of the chest revealed bilateral hilar lymphadenopathy, and ophthalmologic examination revealed bilateral uveitis. The patient was started on oral prednisolone, and immediate symptomatic improvement followed.
