Oct 20th, 2021 - Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) skin manifestations have been increasingly reported in medical literature. Recent discussions have identified a lack of images of skin of color (SOC) patients with COVID-19 related skin findings despite people with skin of color being disproportionately affected with the disease. There have been calls to prioritize the identification of COVID-19 skin manifestation...

Oct 2nd, 2021 - BASCULE syndrome, characterized by Bier anemic spots, cyanosis, and an urticaria-like eruption, has been described as a benign vasomotor dermatosis that occurs in the setting of transient tissue hypoxia. It has been postulated that dermal ischemia triggers an exaggerated vasoconstrictive arteriolar reaction, which then causes a paradoxical urticarial rash by an unknown mechanism. In patients wi...

Clinicopathologic characterization within these categories is limite...

Aug 20th, 2021 - Earlier diagnosis and the best management of virus-related, drug-related or mixed severe potentially life-threatening mucocutaneous reactions of COVID-19 patients are of great concern. These patients, especially hospitalised cases, are usually in a complicated situation (because of multi-organ failures), which makes their management more challenging. In such consultant cases, achieving by the d...

May 5th, 2021 - A spectrum of dermatologic manifestations has been reported in multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children associated with SARS-CoV-2 infection. We report 2 patients with multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children and severe cardiovascular dysfunction who developed acral gangrene. Both responded well to therapy and recovered in the follow-up.

Feb 25th, 2021 - The worldwide spread of the novel coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) has led to a global pandemic since its identification in Wuhan, China in December 2019.1 Few cases of COVID-19-associated dermatologic manifestations have been reported in the literature to date. This report describes the clinical features of a localized p...
Jan 28th, 2021 - A follow-up look at an international registry suggests that some people may have persistent, long-lasting dermatologic manifestations – especially so-called “COVID toes” – as a result of infection with or exposure to the SARS-CoV-2 virus, but some dermatologists question if the skin signs and symptoms are truly related.

Jan 8th, 2021 - The novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 has been associated with a variety of dermatologic manifestations, often the predominant finding in otherwise asymptomatic or oligosymptomatic patients. Urticarial eruption is one example, but few cases have been reported among pediatric patients. We present a case of acute urticaria in a 6-month-old boy preceding other COVID-19 symptoms. The suspicion of a poss...
Dec 9th, 2020 - Most children with multi-system inflammatory syndrome (MIS-C) had mucocutaneous findings, a small case series in New York City found. Among 35 children, 29 with MIS-C exhibited these sequelae, with conjunctival injection, palmoplantar erythema, and lip hyperemia the most common, reported Vikash Oza, MD, of New York University Grossman School of Medicine, and colleagues, writing in a brief repor...
