Coronavirus is a zoonotic RNA virus that cause respiratory infection, from the Coronaviridae family. They were first isolated in 1937 and designated coronaviruses,
because they have a crown-like appearance under microscopy. The clinical spectrum of this disease is quite broad, ranging from a cold to severe pneumonia. Usually,
patients develop signs and symptoms such as fever and respiratory illness. As it is a systemic disease, it is also related to the skin. Some clinical manifestations have
been described, such as petechiae rash, urticaria, livedo reticular. In this article we have the objective to explain more about this clinical scenario.
