Covid-19 and Skin

The COVID-19 virus is deadly. It is insidious, and it is going to be with us for a very long time. How do we continue to provide a clinical service in the grips of a pandemic? What are the cutaneous manifestations of COVID-19? How common are these cutaneous manifestations? What does it mean when a patient presents with perniosis in this time? What about our patients who are immunosuppressed on biologics, what do we do with them?

These are complex and difficult questions, and to help us answer these, we are very fortunate to have with us two eminent dermatologists from the USA, Professor Kanade Shinkai from UCSF and Dr Esther Freeman from Harvard.
