This list is evolving and will be updated as new information and resources become available. Check back frequently. If you would like to suggest a resource for inclusion on this list, please email us.

AAD COVID-19 Dermatology Registry
AAD's COVID-19 Dermatology Registry aims to understand the dermatologic manifestations of COVID-19. AAD is gathering information from all health care providers taking care of COVID-19 patients who develop dermatologic manifestations and dermatology patients with an existing condition who then develop COVID-19. It is important to note that a COVID-19 patient does not have to have a positive confirmed test to be entered into the registry, as entrants will be able to specify if the case was based on clinical suspicion or on a confirmed test.  Also, physicians from any specialty may enter the registry, and we are inviting  international physicians to participate as well. Please share this site with your colleagues and encourage them to report any cases of COVID-19 related dermatoses. The form takes only five minutes to complete.
