Until 2011, the standard-of-care therapy for patients with hepatitis C consisted of interferon and ribavirin. The recent advent of new targeted therapies against this virus has provided more options of treatment for infected patients. Sofosbuvir, a nucleotide inhibitor of hepatitis C virus (HCV) RNA polymerase, was recently approved by the US Food and Drug Administration in 2013. Various Phase 3 trials with sofosbuvir combination therapy have reported an incidence of rash between 7% and 18%. We here describe a case of sofosbuvir-induced erythrodermic pityriasis rubra pilaris-like drug eruption.
