Abstract

The novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is associated with significant morbidity and mortality. While much of the focus has been on the cardiac and pulmonary complications, there are several important dermatologic components that clinicians must be aware of. There are several types of skin findings described in association with COVID-19. These include maculopapular rashes, urticaria, vesicles, petechiae, purpura, chilblains. While most of these dermatologic findings are self-resolving, they can help increase one’s suspicion for COVID-19. It is important to be aware of the dermatologic manifestations and complications of COVID-19. Knowledge of the components is important to help identify potential COVID-19 patients and properly treat complications.

Keywords: covid-19; coronavirus; dermatology; skin; mucoses.
