Abstract

The current outbreak of Zika virus is a growing public health concern, especially for pregnant women. Zika virus infection may manifest as a maculopapular skin eruption that progresses rostrocaudally, with or without hemorrhagic manifestations such as petechiae and gingival bleeding. Recognizing the cutaneous findings associated with Zika virus may aid in early diagnosis, particularly in individuals at increased risk for the disease.
