MAQUEDA-ZAMORA, Gloria; SIERRA-SANTOS, Lucía; SIERRA-SANTOS, Esther  and  MARTINEZ-BALLESTER, Juan Francisco. Dermatological manifestations of COVID-19 infection in paediatrics. Rev Clin Med Fam [online]. 2020, vol.13, n.2, pp.166-170.  Epub Sep 21, 2020. ISSN 2386-8201.

Clinical manifestations of COVID-19 are multiple and varied. Non-specific skin lesions have been lately described, more frequently in children and adolescents, sometimes as the only clinical symptom or in the context of the typical picture of the infection.

We present the case of a 10-year-old boy with skin manifestations as the only symptom of SARS-CoV-2 infection in the epidemiological and family context of the disease. Pandemic situations increase the relevance of extending diagnostic suspicion at any kind of symptom, and to include epidemiological aspects in the diagnostic process. Prognosis in children without comorbidities is usually favourable, but particular attention should be paid to inflammatory and prothrombotic signs secondary to SARS-CoV-2.

Keywords : Coronavirus Infections; Erythema Multiforme; Ischemia; COVID-19; Vasculitis.
