Abstract

During the COVID-19 pandemic, various cutaneous manifestations have been described as associated with SARS-CoV2 infection. It is debated if skin lesions could represent a diagnostic or prognostic indicator. Specifically, it is unclear whether skin lesions may be used to perform an early diagnosis and/or to predict worse outcomes. In this review, we described the cutaneous signs so far reported as COVID-19-related and discussed their incidence, clinico-pathological features, and diagnostic and prognostic value.
