Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) has many cutaneous manifestations. We describe a 30-year-old otherwise healthy male with a generalized purpuric exanthem. Ten days after the onset of the rash, he presented with fatigue, dry cough, shortness of breath, anosmia, and ageusia and was diagnosed as having COVID-19. The presence of an extensive exanthem in an otherwise healthy patient could raise suspicion for underlying COVID-19.
