Abstract

In November 2019, the coronavirus disease-2019 (COVID-19) outbreak was first reported. The infection of COVID-19 has rapidly spread worldwide. Some have unapparent or mild symptoms, but some patients have fatal forms including respiratory or multiple organ failure. In March 2020, the World Health Organization announced COVID-19 as pandemic disease. The COVID-19 pandemic is a sudden, difficult-to-control, and severe disease that can also appear to patients in dermatology. However, understanding disease and experience with it is still insufficient.Therefore, we would like to review patients with fungal infections in the COVID-19 pandemic era.
