      <Abstract>An asymptomatic erythema-like skin rash is here documented for the first time for a home-managed COVID-19 case, as opposed to skin lesions of different severity being reported for hospitalized patients. In the light of the large proportion of asymptomatic or pauci-symptomatic COVID-19 cases, monitoring such poorly publicized manifestation of the disease may help identifying COVID-19 cases and, therefore, control the disease evolution and spread. Furthermore, as more information on the association of mild disease forms with, also mild, skin lesions is gathered, it will be possible to refine diagnostic tests, which are now focusing on RT-PCR-based SARS-CoV-2 detections in oro-faringeal swabs. The latter may even be less suited than skin samples to diagnose infection on asymptomatic or pauci-symptomatic cases exhibiting skin rashes.</Abstract>
