Abstract

We observed ten children with a papular eruption with purpuric features during the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic in Northern Italy (May-December 2020). Histological examination showed signs of SARS-CoV-2-related dermatosis. Evidence of nucleocapsid viral proteins using SARS-CoV-2 (2019-nCoV) nucleocapsid antibody revealed cuticular staining of the deep portion of the eccrine glands in all cases.
