The novel coronavirus (COVID-19) causes a severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus-2 (SARS-CoV-2) that has become a pandemic. In spite of several studies, the more time passes, the more symptoms are reported among COVID-19 patients. Surprisingly, numerous dermatological manifestations are also reported. This chapter focuses on the dermatological manifestations caused by COVID-19 infection. We overviewed and classified common and rare dermatological symptoms among COVID-19 patients and their pathophysiological mechanisms. We also discuss appropriate therapeutic management and attitudes, which may provide insights for dealing with similar cases in medical centers.

Keywords: COVID-19, Dermatological manifestations, Pathophysiology, Therapeutic management.
