Epidemiology of Chilblains During the COVID-19 Pandemic

The incidence of chilblains increased during the COVID-19 pandemic, study data published in JAMA Dermatology demonstrates. This change may have been due to increased care-seeking by patients during the pandemic, changes in behavior under shelter-in-place orders, or a possible causal interaction with COVID-19. Prior studies have described chilblains as a possible cutaneous manifestation of COVID-19,

The Role of Statins in COVID-19, With a Focus on Patients With Cardiovascular Risk Factors

A recent study suggests that patients taking statin medications have a significantly lower risk for in-hospital death from COVID-19. The findings, published in PLOS ONE, demonstrated that the use of statins prior to admission was associated with a 41% reduction of in-hospital death and a greater than 25% reduction in risk of developing a severe

Diagnosis and Management of Coagulation Disorders Related to COVID-19

Although the clinical features of SARS-CoV-2 infection were first reported in 2019, it has also been established that hospitalized patients with COVID-19, especially those admitted to intensive care unit (ICU), have an increased risk for venous thromboembolism (VTE) despite prophylactic dose anticoagulation.1-4 As a result, some experts have suggested that higher anticoagulation targets may be

Multispecialty Perspectives on Long COVID-19

In the year since the global COVID-19 pandemic was declared in March 2020 by the World Health Organization,1 short-term treatments such as prone positioning of patients2 or the use of neutralizing antibody cocktails3 have been optimized, and strategies for patients who remain symptomatic for months or experience long-term sequelae4,5 are being developed. Although several effective

Abdominal Pain, Diarrhea in COVID-19 Linked to H pylori Infection

Among patients with coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) who experience abdominal pain and diarrhea, there is a significant likelihood of Helicobacter pylori (H pylori) infection, according to the results of a study published in the Journal of Pediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition.1 It is currently understood that severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus-2 (SARS-CoV-2), binds angiotensin-converting enzyme-2 (ACE-2)

New Guidance: American College of Physicians Discusses Antibody Response in COVID-19 Immunity

Because of the novelty of the coronavirus that causes COVID-19, there is not enough evidence to determine whether antibodies produced after exposure are protective against reinfection. As such, the American College of Physicians (ACP) published rapid, evidence-based living practice points in the Annals of Internal Medicine discussing the role of antibodies in, tests for diagnosing,

Venous Thromboembolism Management in Patients With COVID-19

The severe systemic inflammatory processes and hypercoagulability occurring with COVID-19 illness increase the risk for atherosclerotic plaque disruption and acute myocardial infarction (AMI). Patients with a previous history of coronary disease and/or other significant comorbidities are particularly predisposed to cardiovascular complications with COVID-19 infection.1 In this installment, we will discuss a patient with COVID-19 and
