AbstractChildren are a unique subset of patients in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic, often presenting asymptomatically, mildly, or atypically. Manifestations of the skin may be a primary (or the only) presenting sign. Recognizing cutaneous manifestations of COVID-19 in the pediatric population is important to guiding precautions, testing, and management for patients and close contacts. Whereas some dermatologic signs in children overlap with those in adults, other skin findings are reported with higher frequency in children and may be clues to multisystemic sequelae. This article describes presentation, pathophysiologic theories, and management strategies for cutaneous manifestations of COVID-19 in children.
