Clin Exp Dermatol. 2020 Sep 9. doi: 10.1111/ced.14442. Online ahead of print.


A 53-year-old female who carries the factor V Leiden mutation developed intermittent blue nodules on the palmar digits of her hands for a 3-week duration, coincident with COVID-19 infection. She has a strong family history of venous thromboembolism but no personal history in this regard. There was no strenuous or heavy manual labor prior to the onset of the nodules.
