Many systemic viral infections are accompanied by skin rashes of variable morphology, some of them pathognomonic for the respective disease. Limited information is available about cutaneous signs in the course of SARS CoV-2 infection. Anecdotal observations and small case series collected from all over the globe have described a plethora of skin signs including, among others, Dengue-like, urticarial, crusted and papular, herpetiform and varicella-like rashes, and chillblain-like lesions ("COVID-toes").
