Abstract Alpha interferon causes frequent and multiple cutaneous side effects that affect both the skin and mucous membranes. Patients receiving this treatment must be informed of the principal adverse reactions (dryness and hair loss or discoloration) and must receive care for them if the underlying treatment is to remain acceptable. Alpha interferon may induce, reveal, or worsen some dermatoses and related inflammatory disorders (atopic dermatitis, psoriasis, sarcoidosis).
