The aim of this case is to describe an example of cutaneous manifestations caused by COVID-19 infection, helping to better understand the disease and support an early clinical suspicion. This case addresses a 36-year-old patient with COVID-19 infection, symptomatic, with mild complaints. Seven days after the start of the clinic, she exhibited dermatological lesions in the acral areas bilaterally on her hands. The presence of erythematous-violet papules/vesicles was found in the dorsal extensor zones of the fingers, with local inflammatory signs, skin rash, flushing, edema, local burning sensation, itching and pain. Pseudo-chilblains were assumed as diagnostic hypotheses. She underwent symptomatic treatment, having achieved complete resolution at 10 days, with no subsequent sequelae.
Attention should be paid to the fact that COVID-19 may present only with cutaneous manifestations, therefore these may serve as an indicator of the disease in suspected cases.
