GUTIERREZ, Lenny et al. Skin Injuries in Pediatrics During the COVID-19 Pandemic. Case Report. Pediatr. (Asunción) [online]. 2020, vol.47, n.2, pp.100-102. ISSN 1683-9803.

In November 2019, in Wuhan, China, what would be a new pandemic started, due to a coronavirus that had not been previously identified, SARS-CoV-2. Subsequently, the first case of COVID-19 was reported in Paraguay in March 2020. Despite the fact that it is a virus of preferential respiratory manifestation, we know to date that it can present with other symptoms, including asymptomatically. Skin lesions, like in many other infectious diseases, have been shown to be caused by this new virus as well, making the dermatologist play an important role in this battle.

We report the first case registered by the Dermatology service of the Itaugua National Hospital of cutaneous manifestations in an infant, secondary to COVID-19 disease.

Keywords : COVID-19; SARS-CoV-2; cutaneous manifestations; erythema pernio.
