The SARS-CoV-2 pandemic represents a challenge in all medical specialties due to the variety of signs and symptoms observed in infected patients. Although the main symptoms of the disease are related to an acute respiratory syndrome, other organs may be affected. Skin manifestations in childhood described in the literature are divided into: Chilblain-like lesions, as the most frequent manifestation of COVID-19 in children and young adults, followed by other dermatological manifestations such as: Erythema multiform, urticaria and as part of the Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome (MIS). The authors report the first case reported in the literature, of a 10-year-old patient who presented a clinical picture of dyshidrotic eczema associated with viral infection by the Coronavirus 19.
