Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, the growing body of literature has largely focused on the adult population. Reported symptoms among children appear to be consistent with those in adults, including fever, respiratory symptoms, and gastrointestinal symptoms, though children may experience an overall milder disease course. Viral exanthems with possible association to COVID-19 have been reported in pediatric patients. We describe a 10-month-old boy with Gianotti-Crosti syndrome in the setting of recent SARS-CoV-2 RT-PCR positive testing to increase physician awareness and add to the collection of cutaneous manifestations of COVID-19.
