The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic is filling the headlines these days. Although it is known that severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) may be associated with skin manifestations, a limited number of images are available in the literature at this time. This observation reports dermatologic findings associated with a confirmed case of COVID-19.
A 48-year-old man with a history of hypertension presented to the emergency department in March 2020, during the COVID-19 outbreak in Madrid, Spain. He reported an onset of fever (up to 39 °C) several days before admission, along with pleuritic chest pain and shortness of breath. He noticed the abrupt appearance of slightly pruritic skin lesions 3 days after the onset of fever. He had not taken any new drugs during the year before this episode.
