The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) has emerged as a worldwide pandemic. In addition to pulmonary symptoms, reports of the involvement of other organs such as the skin are being published. We present the cases of three COVID-19 patients who presented with cutaneous manifestations and review the previous reports. Purpura and petechiae, erythematous papules and
macules, and urticarial eruptions are signs seen in the presented cases. Although a growing number of cutaneous manifestations of COVID-19 have been reported, there is no doubt that further reports of both typical and atypical presentations are needed to confirm and understand skin involvement in COVID-19. Since COVID-19 manifests in various forms, dermatologists, as the
first line of dealing with patients who come with skin rashes, should always be aware of the early diagnosis of this disease.
