FERNANDEZ BOSCH, Alba; MARTINEZ DE LA TORRE, Carlos; CORCOLES GARCIA, Sara  y  SERNA SERRANO, Belén. Cutaneous manifestations of COVID-19 in a polysymptomatic patient. Rev Clin Med Fam [online]. 2020, vol.13, n.3, pp.235-239.  Epub 23-Nov-2020. ISSN 2386-8201.

SARS-CoV-2 virus infection is characterized by multiple manifestations, among which fever, cough, and shortness of breath are the most frequent. However, an increasing presence of different skin lesions has been observed, which may persist over the whole course of the disease, and which in certain cases are the main or only symptom. The connection of the presence or the degree of affectation of these cutaneous manifestations with prognosis has not been confirmed. We present the case of a 25-year-old woman, who had had fever for five days, together with respiratory symptoms. After those symptoms had resolved, a maculopapular rash appeared, lasting for twelve days.

The emergence of new diseases, especially those with the severity and epidemiological significance of the SARS-CoV-2 infection, compels the Family Medicine specialist to consider any type of symptomatology in their suspected diagnosis, even if it is not included among the usual symptoms of the new disease.
