Undersökning om förekomst av "chilblain-like lesions"

Dear Colleagues, 

As you may know, a large number of publications from Southern Europe (France, Italy, Spain), but also from the USA have pointed out towards an increased number of (young adult) patients presenting to the dermatologists for chilblains or chilblain-like lesions of the toes and sometimes of the fingers. 

This "outbreak" of acral lesions matches the time frame of the pandemic in the corresponding countries. However, a true causality between the occurrence of these acral lesions and SARS-CoV-2 is still unclear as in a high number of cases nasal RT-PCR and/or serologies were negative.

Denmark, Finland, Iceland Norway, and Sweden have been affected differently by the pandemic.
