J Eur Acad Dermatol Venereol. 2021 Apr 18. doi: 10.1111/jdv.17287. Online ahead of print.

ABSTRACT

Coronavirus Disease 19 (COVID-19) caused by the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) is associated with an increased risk of vasculitis and thrombotic vasculopathy. Dermatologically, this can translate to severe cutaneous manifestations, such as retiform purpura and acral ischemia1 . But whether these eruptions are specific to SARS-CoV-2 infection is yet to be determined2,3 .
