As the spread of SARS-CoV2 continues to increase globally, newer information gets reported every day. We are learning more and more about the presentation, symptoms and treatment of this infection. Earlier cardinal symptoms of COVID-19 had been fever, cough, and shortness of breath. New findings in its symptoms are now being reported some of which includes neurological symptoms, dizziness and diarrhoea. Of recent skin manifestations due to COVID-19 have drawn the attention of medical experts. The presence of a livedoid pattern (red mottled-net like coloration) rash and a rare skin lesion at the extremities also known as acro-ischemia in patients diagnosed with COVID-19 or patients presenting with symptoms of COVID-19 is now on a surge. Though the correlation between acute acro-ischemia, skin rash and COVID-19 is yet to be fully documented these dermatological and clinical observations in patients might just be another possible key indicator for the presence of the COVID-19 disease.
