Abstract

The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID‐19) affects principally the respiratory tract but recent studies described that COVID‐19 could present a broader clinical spectrum from the absence of any symptoms to heart 1, digestive 2 or Ear‐Nose‐Throat (including anosmia and ageusia) 3 manifestations. Here we report two cases of peculiar skin manifestation.
