Answer

Some patients with HCV infection have an asymptomatic, solitary, 5- to 10-mm diameter, dome-shaped reddish papule on the face, which represents arteriovenous hemangioma and occurs with increased frequency.

Gougerot-Blum disease is a manifestation of HCV infection. [78] Lesions of capillaritis on the lower legs are noted with fine petechiae in various distributions.
