Currently here and hoping to livetweet as much as I can. Discussing interferon-mediated disease and what role these pathways may play in #COVID19.
In SAVI and CANDLE syndrome, which are mediated by the interferon pathway, Jak inhibitors help inhibit the positive feedback loop.
How do we think about the pernio-like lesions associated with #COVID19? Note, we are still trying to establish the causal relationship. But this @JAADjournals paper had some interesting thoughts: jaadcasereports.org/article/S2352-…

It is an enormous pleasure to be part of this #paper: #COVID-PIEL, the Spanish muticentric study of the #cutaneous manifestation of #COVID19 has just been published in the prestigious journal British Journal of Dermatology! 375 patients included! Conclusions here 👇 (#thread)
A new classification of #skin manifestations of #COVID19 is proposed: 1. Acral areas of erythema-oedema with some vesicles or pustules (19%); 2. Other vesicular eruptions (9%); 3 Urticarial lesions (19%); 4. Other maculopapules (47%) and 5. Livedo or necrosis (6%)
1⃣ Acral lesions, #COVIDtoes, pseudo-chiblains..., affected young patients and lasted a mean of 12,7 days to appear in the course of COVID. They were associated with less severe disease. Itchy (30%) or painful (32%).

Una carta publicada en @TheLancet encuentra finalmente respuestas a las preguntas sobre las tan comunes lesiones dermatológicas en los dedos (#covidtoes) que estamos viendo durante la infección por el #COVID19 #COVID19Pandemic. Abro hilo

Si bien el virus usa habitualmente el receptor #Ace2 para crear el daño a nivel pulmonar, ya que éste se encuentra muy abundante en los neumocitos del epitelio alveolar (células del pulmón) y que es lo que provoca la famosa pneumonia por covid,

Okay #medtwitter and #dermtwitter, you knew it was only a matter of time, didn’t you?! Let’s do this #COVID19 themed #medthread:

First, a word of caution – this is one person’s thoughts on a new skin finding reported in a new disease that the medical community is still learning about! As such, nothing in the #tweetorial should be regarded as definite. Just wanted to share a thought process!

So, who cares? #COVID19 is devastating, at times even for the young & healthy! But it’s all respiratory, right?

Well, as we're learning, there's so much more to #SARScov2, and as a #dermatologist, this is the perfect example of how the exam helps frame possible mechanisms.
