OBJECTIVE: COVID-19 toes represent the main dermatological COVID-19 cutaneous manifestation in pediatric patients. Its diagnosis exposes the whole family to social stigma and this aspect was not previously evaluated. PATIENTS AND METHODS: This was a multicenter, case-control, observational study that compared the family impact of COVID-19 toes vs. psoriasis (PsO). We enrolled 46 pediatric patients (23 with psoriasis and 23 with COVID-19 toes, age and gender matched) and their parents/caregivers that had to fill the Dermatitis Family Impact (DFI) questionnaire. RESULTS: DFI index did not differ significantly between both subgroups (p=0.48), and in psoriatic patients did not correlate with both Psoriasis Area Severity Index (PASI) (p=0.59) and itch-VAS (p=0.16). CONCLUSIONS: COVID-19 toes, a transitory dermatosis, exerted a similar impact/perturbation on family dynamics than PsO, a well-known stigmatizing, chronic inflammatory dermatosis.

BACKGROUND: Psoriasis is a chronic inflammatory disease that affects 2% of population. About 0.5–2% of psoriatic cases develop during pediatric age. In most cases, the condition is responsive to topical treatment. However, a small percentage of children require systemic treatment with conventional systemic drugs or biological agents, such as anti-tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-α. Adalimumab (ADA) is an anti-TNF-α recently approved for pediatric psoriasis in the European Union (from 4 years of age, 2015). CASE PRESENTATION: We describe our experience treating a 5-year-old female patient affected by severe plaque psoriasis with ADA biosimilar during SARS-CoV-2 pandemic outbreak also using teledermatology. CONCLUSION: The case reported in this article highlights the safety and the effectiveness of ADA biosimilar MSB11022 (Idacio®) in the treatment of a 5-year-old female affected by plaque psoriasis and paves the way to bigger trials for a more extensive use of TNF-α inhibitor biosimilars for psoriasis in pediatric population.
