L’articolo risulta di interesse in quanto analizza le manifestazioni cutanee nei Pazienti COVID-19 positivi. Ad oggi non si conosce la relazione tra questo virus e la cute. Conoscere le manifestazioni cutanee potrà essere molto utile nel sospetto diagnostico di questa virosi e potrebbe quindi aiutarci a delimitare l’infezione.
In December 2019 unexplained pneumonia cases were initially reported in Wuhan, China. A novel coronavirus named severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 was isolated. Subsequently it has rapidly spread throughout China, and Italy was one of the most involved country. We tried to analyze the cutaneous involvement in COVID-19 patients hospitalized in the Lecco Hospital, Lombardy, Italy: from the 148 positive patients, we collected 88 cases and we excluded the others because of a recent history of new drug intake. 20.4% developed cutaneous involvement with different manifestations.
