Update of Dermatologic problems in Adults Suffering from COVID-19

Author(s):Mir Monir Hossain* and Tasmuna Tamrin Tanmy

The novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2), the cause of Coronavirus 2019 disease (COVID-19) pandemic, is associated with some cutaneous manifestations. This novel disease is associated mostly with significant morbidity and mortality. While the cutaneous presentations of COVID-19 are infrequent, it is of great importance for all clinicians to be aware of these manifestations, as it may contribute to sooner and better diagnosis and management of the disease, even in asymptomatic or paucisymptomatic patients. Although known to primarily cause interstitial pneumonia and respiratory failure, there are several important dermatologic components in adults that clinicians must be aware of. The reported cutaneous manifestations of COVID-19 are various, dispersed, and sometimes confusing. This review aimed to collate and categorize the dermatologic findings reported in adult patients with COVID-19 and identify specific lesions that may facilitate diagnosis and prognostication.
