COVID-19 and Skin – Pubmed search results

The severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) has rapidly become a global health issue. Although it is known to produce diverse cutaneous manifestations, some of them have yet to be described. This letter reports new dermatologic findings associated with a confirmed COVID-19 case.
SARS-CoV-2 has been hypothesized as the aetiologic agent of CLL, on the basis of the temporal correlation between the "burst" of skin manifestations and the viral pandemic, even though we have scarce evidence of swab-confirmed infections. Authors have therefore suggested some pathogenetic mechanisms such as a delayed immune-mediated reaction to the virus in genetically-predisposed patients¹ or an early IFN-I response in young patients, muting early viral replication but also inducing...
On March 11, 2020, the first case of the novel coronavirus 2019 disease (COVID-19) was officially confirmed in Turkey. The disease continues to spread, and the number of patients has risen to 120,000 by the end of April. In this observation, we report an atypical presentation of COVID-19 in a patient with indurated painful nodules. A-61-years-old woman with a one-week history of fever (axillary 38°C) and nodules on the cheek was admitted to the hospital with fatigue, arthralgia and myalgia.
Emilia-Romagna was one of the Italian regions mostly affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and lockdown measures were taken to slow the COVID-19 outbreak. All routine activities in Modena hospitals were suspended; however, urgent procedures were still to be performed. Setting the priority of procedures in oncological dermatology in the COVID-19 era is challenging.
We read with interest the article by Recalcati et al. about the report of cutaneous manifestations in COVID-19 patients. We would like to highlight that some potentially severe manifestations in these patients are not directly related to the coronavirus but to the medications administered.
We read with interest the publications in the JEADV which reported dermatological manifestations associated with COVID-19, such as pityriasis rosea, urticaria, rash, vascular signs, or chilblain-like lesions. Herein, we report two life-threatening cases of children presenting with fever and eruptions with mucous membrane involvement - erythema multiforme and Kawasaki disease - associated with COVID-19.
SARS-CoV-2 poses new challenges in all aspects of healthcare. Patients with preexisting cardio-vascular conditions are at higher risk of developing severe symptoms and worse outcome. Data also suggest that cancer patients are particularly vulnerable, but differences between tumor entities and cancer treatments may exist. Little is known how cancer treatment engaging immune checkpoints affects the course of COVID-19.
CONCLUSION: The increase of hand sanitation during the COVID-19 pandemic impairs the skin of the hands across all HCWs, independent of direct intensive care of affected patients. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

The publication entitled "Chilblains-like lesions in children following suspected Covid-19 infection" is very interesting [1]. Colonna et al. reported four children with suspected COVID-19 cases with "[h]istology from one case showed signs of vasculitis with evident fibrin thrombus [1]." While various skin findings have been reported with COVID-19 infection, the chilblains lesions have been reported from Italy and Spain, and sporadically from China, the starting point of disease pandemic [2-5].
Less is known about gastrointestinal (GI) involvement of primary skin diseases due to the difference in embryology, histology, microbiology and physiology between integument and alimentary tract. Esophagus, following the oropharyngeal mucosa, is the most common GI segment affected by primary skin diseases, especially by eosinophilic esophagitis, lichen planus, and autoimmune bullous dermatoses like pemphigus vulgaris, mucosal membrane pemphigoid and epidermolysis bullosa acquisita. Eosinophilic...
CONCLUSION: A complex interplay between environmental factors, epithelium, and the immune system is involved in the development of systemic allergic diseases.
Introduction: Total joint arthroplasty is projected to expand rapidly by 2030. With large numbers of patients undergoing TJA, the choice of incisional closure has come into question. We compared the 2-Ocyl cyanoacrylate closure system of Dermabond ® Prineo ® with Exofin Fusion ® to compare rates of adverse wound outcomes after total joint arthroplasty. Secondary outcome measures were age, sex, and medical comorbidities between groups. Methods: We retrospectively reviewed adverse wound outcomes...
It is well understood that ultraviolet-C (UVC) radiation is effective for the destruction of micro-organisms and drug-resistant bacteria and is being investigated for its effectiveness at destroying the virus responsible for the current Covid-19 global pandemic. Far-UVC (200 - 220 nm) has been proposed as an effective disinfection radiation that is safe to humans. In 2014, Woods et al. undertook a first-in-person study to assess the effect on skin of a 222 nm UVC emitting device (Sterilray...
CONCLUSION: Skin involvement in GPA is quite common, and it can manifest in different forms in the same patient. Our patient developed three different skin pathologies within a short period of time.
Immune checkpoint inhibitors (CPI) have emerged as a pillar in the management of advanced malignancies. However, nonspecific immune activation may lead to immune-related adverse events (irAEs), wherein the skin and its appendages are the most frequent targets. Cutaneous irAEs (irCAEs) include a diverse group of inflammatory reactions, with maculopapular rash (MPR), pruritus, and lichenoid dermatitis being the most prevalent subtypes. irCAEs occur early, with MPR presenting within the first six...
Atopic dermatitis (AD) is a common inflammatory skin disease characterized by intense pruritus and skin lesions. The exact cause of AD is not yet known and the available therapeutic strategies for AD are limited. Fructus cnidii is commonly used in traditional Chinese medicine as an herb for treating chronic itch. However, the mechanism underlying the antipruritic effects of Fructus cnidii is not well understood. In the present study, we investigated the antipruritic effect of locally...
