COVID-19 and papular manifestations pattern in 3 patients: a retrospective case series

  • Received: 20 November 2020 Accepted: 25 January 2021 Published: 02 February 2021
  • COVID-19 can be associated with varying degrees of cutaneous lesions. Although these manifestations were rare, they can be considered as a specific symptom of COVID-19. Here, we present 3 patients for whom the diagnosis of COVID-19 was made by RT-PCR and a few days after the onset of systemic symptoms, papular cutaneous lesions appeared and on average after 6 days, the lesions started to disappear without any specific treatments. Demographic and clinical features of the 3 patients are summarized in Table 1.
